Templin, Thomas J.; Richards, K. Andrew R. – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2014
Charles H. McCloy was an icon in our profession. He was not only a leading researcher in the area of anthropometrics and tests and measurements, but he was a leading advocate for physical education (PE) in our country. McCloy's advocacy ties nicely into the authors' belief that the socialization process has a profound impact on the state…

Badami, Rokhsareh; VaezMousavi, Mohammad; Wulf, Gabriele; Namazizadeh, Mahdi – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2012
One purpose of the present study was to examine whether self-confidence or anxiety would be differentially affected by feedback from more accurate rather than less accurate trials. The second purpose was to determine whether arousal variations (activation) would predict performance. On Day 1, participants performed a golf putting task under one of…

Wiggins, David K.; Wiggins, Brenda P. – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2011
This study analyzes the experiences of African Americans in the physical education and kinesiology profession since the late 1850s. Using a variety of primary and secondary source material, we place special emphasis on the experiences of African American physical educators in higher education and in the American Alliance for Health, Physical…

Oliver, Melody; Badland, Hannah M.; Schofield, Grant M.; Shepherd, Janine – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2011
The primary aim of the current study was to investigate the accuracy of various automated rules for determining accelerometer nonwear time in a sample of predominantly desk-based office workers (using their self-reported nonwear times as a criterion). Second, the authors examined the effect of applying these rules to accelerometer data retention…

Kadota, Koji; Matsuo, Tomoyuki; Hashizume, Ken; Tezuka, Kazushi – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2006
We investigated the differences in mechanical power flow in early and late practice stages during a cyclic movement consisting of upper arm circumduction to clarify the change in mechanical energy use with skill acquisition. Seven participants practiced the task every other day until their joint angular movements conformed to those of an expert.…

Lam, Melanie; McFee, Kristen; Chua, Romeo; Weeks, Daniel J. – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2006
The purpose of the present study was to extend the scope of "macro" action constraints by examining a gross motor task that required participants to lift a large object with two hands and place it on one of two designated targets. Participants were thirteen undergraduate students from Simon Fraser University. Results of the study suggest that…

Wrynn, Alison M. – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2005
Margaret Bell's life illustrates the limited opportunities for women in higher education in addition to the restrictions they faced when attempting to control their narrow sphere of professional influence. Bell's career is also an outstanding exemplar of connections physical education had with health and medicine in its early years and the shift…

Burden, Joe W., Jr.; Harrison, Louis, Jr.; Hodge, Samuel R. – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2005
The purpose of this study was to examine the perceptions of African American faculty on their organizational socialization in kinesiology-based (i.e., sport pedagogy, exercise physiology, motor behavior, sport management/history) programs at predominantly White American (1) institutions of higher education (PW-IHE). Participants were 9 African…

Barrett, David D.; Burton, Allen W. – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2002
Examined the form of 3,684 throws made by 100 collegiate baseball players in relation to position, distance, and active and inactive situations. Videotapes of all throws for 94 half innings showed that interrater reliability of task, environment, and performance measures were all acceptable to excellent, indicating that qualitative aspects of…

Larsen, Gary E.; George, James D.; Alexander, Jeffrey L.; Fellingham, Gilbert W.; Aldana, Steve G.; Parcell, Allen C. – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2002
Developed a cardiorespiratory endurance test that retained the inherent advantages of submaximal testing while eliminating reliance on heart rate measurement in predicting maximum oxygen uptake (VO2max). College students completed three exercise tests. The 1.5-mile endurance test predicted VO2max from submaximal exercise without requiring heart…

Van Vorst, John G.; Buckworth, Janet; Mattern, Craig – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2002
Examined the physical self-concept of participants in a college strength training class based on self-classification into exercise stage of change at the beginning of class. Data from the Physical Self-Description Questionnaire indicated that upper body strength and self-report of physical activity were significantly lower for participants in the…

Silverman, Stephen; Keating, Xiaofen Deng – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2002
Examined the content, process, and instructors of introductory graduate research methods classes within kinesiology and physical education departments. Overall, course objectives included understanding, planning, critiquing, and applying research. Quantitative design and analysis were emphasized most frequently. Most class time involved lecture.…

Bartholomew, John B.; Miller, Bridget M. – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2002
Tested the mastery hypothesis as an explanation for the affective benefits of acute exercise. Undergraduate women from a self-selected aerobic dance class rated their exercise performance following class. Affect questionnaires were completed before and at 5 and 20 minutes after the class. Results showed an overall improvement in affect following…

Buchanan, Patricia A.; Ulrich, Beverly D. – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2001
Describes the Feldenkrais Method of somatic education, noting parallels with a dynamic systems theory (DST) approach to motor behavior. Feldenkrais uses movement and perception to foster individualized improvement in function. DST explains that a human-environment system continually adapts to changing conditions and assembles behaviors…

Coull, Jamie; Tremblay, Luc; Elliott, Digby – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2001
Examined two aspects of the specificity of practice hypothesis using a tracking task. In one experiment, visual or auditory feedback about performance was provided. In a second experiment, visual and auditory information were combined. Both experiments supported the specificity of practice hypothesis. Instructing participants to attend to one…
