|1. An understanding of the vital relationship that exists between measurement and evaluation and the objectives of the program. When you have succeeded in achieving this objective, the program, the pupil, and the teacher will benefit.|
|2. An appreciation for and knowledge of the principles in organizing and administering efficiently the measurement schedule in the physical education program. Efficient administration of the selected tests results in more reliable test scores and greater respect for the measurement schedule by pupils and colleagues.|
|3. A comprehension of basic procedures in analyzing the data collected from the testing program. In order to use effectively the results of the tests, you must understand elementary statistical procedures.|
|4. An understanding of the basic principles underlying the application of measurement results to the program. Regardless of the tests you select to administer, there are basic principles in applying the test results to your program. If these test results are not used, it is better not to test at all.|
|5. An acquaintance with the more pertinent tests in the field of measurement and evaluation. You should become sufficiently familiar with this field to know the best tests available for your particular needs. Furthermore, as a professional person, you should not only be conversant with them, but be able to evaluate these tests scientifically in terms of their utility in the program.|
