Tips for Using Microsoft Excel in Assessment.
Kahan, David
Acknowledging the need for additional practical resources for integrating technology into physical education assessment, this paper provides strategies and step-by-step instructions for incorporating Microsoft Excel into physical educators' assessment tools. The first section briefly reviews the literature on assessment in physical education. The second section describes data entry and beginning analyses, including entering student names, tallying points, and obtaining a mean and standard deviation. The third section covers advanced analyses based on hypothetical data generated for 20 5th grade male students' performance in the Presidential Physical Fitness test shuttle run. The fourth section discusses data presentation basics, including creating charts and graphs. Sample charts and graphs are appended. (Contains 14 references.) (MES)
