A. Performing the test in an indoor facility
B. Using salt tablets to retain water
C. Drinking fluids during the test
D. Scheduling test in the AM

B.

4

The bench press, vertical jump, and 10m sprint are the most valid tests for which of the following American football positions?
A. Quarterback
B. Defensive back
C. Defensive linemen

C

5

Which of the following sequences will produce the MOST reliable results?
A. 1 RM power clean, T-test, 1.5 mile run, 1RM bench

B. T-test, 1 Rm power clean, 1 RM bench, 1.5 mile run

B

6

Testing helps athletes and coaches assess athletic talent and identify physical abilities and areas in need of improvement.

Test scores can be used in goal setting. baseline measurements can be used to establish starting points which achievable goals can be set

7

___ is a procedure for assessing ability in a particular endeavor

TEST

8

____ test is a test used to assess ability that is performed away from the lab and does not require extensive training or expensive equipment.

Field

9

___ si the process of collecting test data

Measurement

10

___ is the process of analyzing test results for the purpose of making decisions

Evaluation

11

____ a test administered before the beginning of training to determine the athletes initial basic ability levels.

PRE test

12

___ Is a test administered one or more times during the training period to assess progress and modify the program as needed to maximize benefit

Mid test

13

_____ evaluation is periodic reevaluation based on mid tests administered during the training, usually at regular intervals

Formative

14

____ test that's administered after the training period to determine the success of the training program

Post test

15

Test results are only useful if the test actually measures what is supposed to measure ( )

Validity

16

___ refers to the degree to which a test or test item measures what it is supposed to measure, and it one of the MOST important characteristic of testing

Validity

17

There are several types of validity

1. Construct validity
2. Face validity
3. Content validity
4. Criterion referenced validity

18

___ validity is the ability of a test to represent the underlying construct, the overall validity

Construct

19

___ validity is the appearance to the athlete and other casual observers that the test measures what it is purported to measure. If it has this validity the athlete is more likely to respond positively

Face

20

WHat is the most important part of a test?

Validity

21

___ validity is the assessment by expert that the testing covers all relevant subtopics or component abilities in appropriate proportions. To ensure this validity the test developer should list the ability components to be assessed and make sure they are all represented on the test.

Content validity

22

___ validity is the extent to which test scores are associated with some other measure of the same ability. Three types 1. Concurrent, predictive, discriminant

Criterion referenced validity

23

____ is a measure of the degree of consistency or repeatability of a test. Ex0 if an athlete whose ability does not change is measured two times with a perfectly reliable test, the same score is obtained two time.

Reliability

24

There are several ways to determine reliability. The most obvious one is to administer the same test several times. Statistical correlation of the scores from two administers provides a measure of ___

Test-retest reliability

25

____ is a measure of the degree of consistency of a test. A test must be reliable to be valid, because highly variable results have little meaning.

Reliability

26

____ variability is a lack of consistent performance by the person being tested

INtrasubject

27

____ variability is the lack of consistent scores by a given tester. Different from integrated relaibility. This is a coach being more lenient

Intrarater

28

Test selection:
The professional must consider sport specificity, metabolic energy systems, bio mechanical movement, athlete experience, training status, age, and environment factors

Validity and reliability

29

For a test to be ___ it must emulate the energy requirements and important movements of the sport for which ability is being tested

Valid

30

Athletes experience, training status, age, and sex can affect test performance, so these factors should be considered in test selection. Environmental factors such as temp, ji dirty, and altitude can also influence test performance, so tester should try to standardize environmental conditions as much as possible.

Test selection

31

To achieve accurate test results, tests must be administered safely, correctly, and in an organized manner.

Test administration

32

Recording forms:
Everything should be noted when giving a test

Environmental conditions
Set up of test
For 1 RM squat the pin height of the barbell

33

Test format:

A well organized testing session in which the athletes are aware of the purpose and procedures of the testing, will enhance the ___ of test measures

Relaibility

34

It is preferable to have the same person administer a given test is time and schedules permit because this eliminates ____ reliability

Interrater

35

When administering a ___ ___ (max pullups and push-ups) test should be separated by at least 5 minutes to prevent the effects of fatigue from confounding the test results.

Test battery

36

Test requiring high skill such as agility tests should be administered before test that are likely to produce fatigue

Test order

37

Test order:
1. Nonfatiguing test (height, weight, ski fold, vertical jump)
2. Agility test ( t-test, pro agility test)
3. Max power and strength test (1RM power clean, 1RM squat)
4.Sprint test (40m sprint)
5. Local muscular endurance (push-up)
6. Fatiguing anaerobic capacity test (300 yard shuttle)
7. Aerobic capacity test (1.5 mile run)

The test order should also be designed to require minimal recovery time between tests allowing for a more efficient testing session

38

The date, time, and purpose of a test battery should be announced in advance to allow athletes to prepare physical ally and mentally.

To maximize test reliability, athletes should be familiar with test content and procedures.

39

A general and specific warm up will help with test reliability.

After a test like 300 years shuttle run an athlete should not lie or sit down, active recovery using low intensity movement and light stretching will enhance recovery process.
