Measurement in Physical Education

By Donald K. Mathews; Nancy Allison Close | Go to book overview

physical education program: (1) the screening phase, the primary purpose of which is to locate the seriously deficient requiring individual attention; and (2) the general instructional phase, the primary purpose of which is twofold: to allow practice of such specific skills as standing, walking, and sitting, and, at the same time, to assign a mark of proficiency in each of the events; and (3) the more definitive measurement, which is used with those pupils seriously deficient--the ones who have been placed in an individual program on the basis of the screening test.
