Flashcards in Lecture 3 - Testing concepts, screening, communication Deck (35):
1

2 things to consider about ease of test administration

-how easy it is (for client and testers)
-how feasible it is for staff requirements, training needs, equipment, costs

2

what are laboratory tests

performed in a highly-controlled lab environment

3

what are field tests

performed in the field outside of lab

4

pros and cons of lab tests

- can control external and internal factors (pressure, temo, weather); nicer equipment increasing accuracy and precision)
- may not reflect field performance, lacks validity, expensive, duration and training for equipment

5

pros and cons for field tests

- cheap, easily available, reflects performance better, less training
- hard to control for, no equipment

6

3 important test characteristics

1. discrimination (ability to differentiate between people)
2. practicality and mass testibility (feasible within time and cost, ability to test many ppl at once)
3. testing sequence (make sure its the same sequence)

7

Test items sequence (CSEP)

-Screening
- body comp
- aerobic fitness
-musculoskeletal fitness
- balance

8

forms for screening process

GAQ/PAR Q+
Consent
Observation
Resting HR & BP

9

Test items sequence (NSCA)

- screening
- non-fatiguing tests (body comp, vertical jump)
- agility tests
-max strength & power
- sprint tests
- local muscle endurance
- fatiguing anaerobic tests
- aerobic capacity (diff day/ after 1hr)

10

why do you interpret test results

to indicate a person's performance in comparison to set of standards or norms

11

for multiple tests, the score can be the ___ or ____

best score; mean score of trials

12

standards can be ____ or ____

criterion referenced; norm referenced

13

criterion-referenced standards

-aka criterion score
-min profiency scores (Pass or fall)
- firefighter test, drivers license

14

norm-referenced standards

-rates performance in relation to norms
-more commonly used in health and performance testing
-may add meaning for client by showing tables
- eg beep test

15

4 things to consider when selecting norm values

- type of test and protocol used
- definition and demographics of population being compared to
- test administered by certified professional
- values published by reputable source (indep org., comp with interests, peer reviewed)

16

for ethical considerations, every client should expect the right to (3)

1. fair and equitable treatment
2. privacy, anonymity, confidentiality (hard with team/ field work)
3. safe and positive testing experience

17

5 CSEP steps for fitness assessment

step 1. ask - get to know client
step 2. assess - PA, fitness, lifestyle
step 3: advise - evaluate report and discussion
step 4: agree - device action plan
step 5: assist and arrange - provice continuous support

18

Step 1 - ASK

- PA readiness screening
- establish rapport, gather info about goals, background
- informed consent, HR, BP

19

Why screen? (3)

- professional
- ethical
- legal

20

emergency procedures for screening

- emergency phone # and procedure
- clients emerg contact, consent form
- record incidence details

21

Preliminary instructions for clients

- helps with standardization and needs to be provided 48 hrs in advance
- should cover dress code, food and bev, caffeine, smoking, alcohol, exercise

22

5 components of pre-test screening

1. GAQ/PAQ +/ health history questionnare
2. consent form
3. resting HR
4. Resting BP
5. observation

23

What is the PAR Q/ PAR Q+ form

- 4 page form for screening prior to PA
- addresses chronic conditions
- must be read, understood and signed
- medical screening may be required

24

2 things you need to clarify on the PARQ

1. heart condition
2. dizziness

25

GAQ form

- get active questionnaire
- self-administered form for health care providers
- clients can make sure that they seek medical help thru self-adminstering this test

26

Signs and symptoms of CV, pulm, renal or metabolic disease

- pain, discomfort in neck, jaw, chest
- shortness of breath at rest or mild PA
- dizziness, syncope
- orthopnea or nocturnal dyspnea
- ankle edema
- palpitations or tachycardia
- intermittent claudication
- heart murmur
- unusual fatigue

27

informed consent

- legal document both parties sign
- essential components are benefits and risks of assessment
- client should be made aware that it is voluntary, they need to inform tester if problem occurs, they can withdraw at any time

28

what to look for in observations

- part of screening
- pregnant or no medical consent
- difficulty breathing, coughing
- fever, ill
- swelling in lower extremity
- meds for CV or metabolic disease
- ignored prelim instructions
- did not answer forms

29

BP and HR

- must be measured prior to testing
- if they are above or below cut off values, have client sit for 5 min and repeat
- if still above/below, refer to medical screening

30

cut off values for HR and BP

RHR: >/= 100bpm
resting SBP: >/= 160 mmHg
resting DBP >/=90mmHg

31

Step 2 - ASSESS

- detailed exma of clients PA, fitness
- discern health benefits, talk about tests and objective, do all the esting

32

discussing results

- be optimistic
- key to success is to not rush
- use appropriate norm referencing and explain results
- leave them results in a meaningful form
- highlight areas especially important to them
- keep file for yourself

33

results interpretation

- health benefit ratings (CSEP) and classifications
- norms/ %iles
- pre and post testing to determine % improvement

34

Step 4 - AGREE

- examine options so client is committed to change
- develop action plan with SMART goals and tactics

35

Step 5 - ASSIST & ARRANGE

- establish timing and format of follow up for continuous support, develop basis of relationship
