what are the 6 purposes of testing and evaluation?
6) program evaluation
initial tests can be used to group individuals on he basis of skill level or ability
what does placement grouping allow for?
allows for the most efficient and effective use of time for training
after administering a test, the results must be evaluated - performances can be evaluated - deficiencies and weaknesses are identified
what determines what specific areas should be focused on during training?
the results from diagnosis
specialized tests can be used to predict future results and performance
do prediction tests have varying degrees of success in their capacity to predict future events?
tests and measurements assist in the ________ of our preductions
most individuals need the proper motivation if they are to put forth their full effort
measurement and evaluation can be stimulating and challenging enough to increase individuals _______ levels
measurement and tests allow _________ to be evaluated
what must be established in order to objectively and accurately measure achievements?
a set of objectives must be established prior to testing
what is an example of achievement?
the number of foul shots made out of 10
program evaluation allows for what?
allows for the determination of whether a program has successfully achieved its objectives
what is program evaluation often related to?
the average of a population
refers to the consistency or repeatability of test scores, data, or observations
when is a test considered reliable?
if measurements are the same each time the test is administered to the same individual
the extent to which a test measures what is proposes to measure. a trait that is possessed by the instrument or test being used
with a dart board as an example: what would be the reliability? what would be the validity?
reliability: refers to the "clustering" or "spread" in reference to the placement of each dart thrown
validity: refers to the placement of each dart thrown relative to an established standard or intended target (distance from the 'bull's eye')
in order to be deemed valid, a test must be ______ and _______ and measure what is is supposed to measure
reliable and relevant
what is aerobic capacity a reflection of?
aerobic capacity is a reflection of an individuals cardiorespiratory endurance
what are the 2 ways aerobic capacity can be measured?
lab or field test
how is aerobic capacity measured in the lab?
measurement of VO2 max is achieved during a graded exercise test to exhaustion
how do field tests measure VO2 max?
using various calculations
aerobic capacity is estimated from the _________ or __________ following activity
heart rate response or recovery heart rate
________ of tests is crucial to the accuracy of field tests
list 5 field tests that measure aerobic capacity
1) 12- minute run-walk test
2) 1-mile run or walk test
3) 2400-metre endurance run
4) YMCA 3-minute step test
5) Queen's College step test
what are 2 ways to measure body composition?
