Examinations in Physical Education: A Sociological Perspective on a "New Orthodoxy."
Green, Ken
British Journal of Sociology of Education, v22 n1 p51 73 Mar 2001
Explores the rapid growth of academic examinations in physical education (PE) and sports studies. Considers if such growth represents a new orthodoxy rather than merely a consensus of thought and practice among PE teachers. Concludes that the increase results from the academicization and professionalism of PE and qualifies as an orthodoxy. (PAL)
