Using Instruments for Tactical Assessment in Physical Education and Extra-Curricular Sports
Arias-Estero, José; Castejón, Francisco
European Physical Education Review, v20 n4 p525-535 Nov 2014
The aim was to analyse the features concerning the applicational purpose and strategy of the most common instruments used to assess game tactics both in Physical Education (PE) and in extra-curricular sport contexts. The review focused on two instruments: the Game Performance Assessment Instrument (GPAI) and the Team Sport Assessment Procedure (TSAP). The results showed that the two instruments were both mainly applied at the final stage of Junior School and the initial stage of Secondary School. The GPAI was used chiefly in PE (90.91%), through hetero-assessment (90.91%), observation of videos (90.91%), and at the beginning and the end of the teaching and learning process (54.54%). The TSAP was more likely than the GPAI to be used in youth sports (40%), through peer-assessment (60%), live (real time) assessment (60%), and at the end of the teaching-learning process (80%). Despite the possibilities provided by their excellent design, the present review shows that neither instrument has been used very frequently, according to the analysed variables.
