1

what are the 6 purposes of testing and evaluation?

1) placement
2) diagnosis
3) prediction
4) motivation
5) achievement
6) program evaluation

2

placement

initial tests can be used to group individuals on he basis of skill level or ability

3

what does placement grouping allow for?

allows for the most efficient and effective use of time for training

4

diagnosis

after administering a test, the results must be evaluated - performances can be evaluated - deficiencies and weaknesses are identified

5

what determines what specific areas should be focused on during training?

the results from diagnosis

6

prediction

specialized tests can be used to predict future results and performance

7

do prediction tests have varying degrees of success in their capacity to predict future events?

yes

8

tests and measurements assist in the ________ of our preductions

accuracy

9

motivation

most individuals need the proper motivation if they are to put forth their full effort

10

measurement and evaluation can be stimulating and challenging enough to increase individuals _______ levels

motivation levels

11

measurement and tests allow _________ to be evaluated

achievement

12

what must be established in order to objectively and accurately measure achievements?

a set of objectives must be established prior to testing

13

what is an example of achievement?

the number of foul shots made out of 10

14

program evaluation allows for what?

allows for the determination of whether a program has successfully achieved its objectives

15

what is program evaluation often related to?

budgetary constraints

16

norms

the average of a population

17

reliability

refers to the consistency or repeatability of test scores, data, or observations

18

when is a test considered reliable?

if measurements are the same each time the test is administered to the same individual

19

validity

the extent to which a test measures what is proposes to measure. a trait that is possessed by the instrument or test being used

20

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')

21

in order to be deemed valid, a test must be ______ and _______ and measure what is is supposed to measure

reliable and relevant

22

what is aerobic capacity a reflection of?

aerobic capacity is a reflection of an individuals cardiorespiratory endurance

23

what are the 2 ways aerobic capacity can be measured?

lab or field test

24

how is aerobic capacity measured in the lab?

measurement of VO2 max is achieved during a graded exercise test to exhaustion

25

how do field tests measure VO2 max?

using various calculations

26

aerobic capacity is estimated from the _________ or __________ following activity

heart rate response or recovery heart rate

27

________ of tests is crucial to the accuracy of field tests

standardization

28

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

29

what are 2 ways to measure body composition?

1) YMCA skin fold test
2) circumference (girth) measurements

30

what are measurements of subcutaneous fat based on?

the relationship that exists between subcutaneous fat and total body fat
