Summary

Up-to-date measurement and assessment skills are necessary in preparing to become a physical education, exercise, or sport professional. This edition maintains the integrity of previous editions by continuing its practical approach to content, featuring complete and ready-to-use assessment tools and scoring information. It focuses on measurement and assessment in all three educational domains--physical, cognitive and affective. Helpful pedagogical devices include "What Do YOU Think?" controversy boxes, self-test questions with answers, keyword lists, chapter summaries, "Computer-assisted Searches" sections and "Doing Projects" boxes for further learning. New to this edition are nine "special applications" chapters, written by renowned experts in their fields, who explain how measurement and assessment skills are applied in their areas of specialization. These chapters are unique since NO other textbook in the field offers anything similar.
