Measuring Psychomotor Skills PE 254
Psychomotor Domain emphasized in school settings includes: skill-related physical fitness development of movement competence
Considerations for Testing Encourage maximum effort. Get to know each student. Provide effective demonstrations. Avoid potentially embarrassing situations. Test in a nonthreatening environment. Practice or simulate testing conditions. Recognize contraindicated (injurious) activities.
Uses of Psychomotor Tests Provide valid measurements. Classify students. Include item as a part of a more comprehensive set of tests. Assess performance to predict potential in particular activities. Motivate students to higher levels of skills performance.
Uses of Psychomotor Tests (continued) Determine student achievement and grades. Developing class profiles. Assess instructional effectiveness in a specific unit of instruction. Supplement and enrich class instruction. Diagnose motor deficiencies.
Skill-Related Dimension agility balance coordination power speed reaction time
Measuring Balance static balance – ability to maintain equilibrium in a stationary position stork stand dynamic balance – ability to move through space in a steady and stable manner balance beam walk
Measuring Coordination coordination – harmoniously integrate multiple gross motor skills into a smooth movement pattern Body Coordination Test (alternate hand wall toss test, juggling test with bean bags or tennis balls)
Measuring Power standing long jump vertical jump softball throw for distance (throwing power)
Measuring Speed and Reaction Speed and reaction can be considered separately, but there is a relationship. 50 yard dash Hand Reaction Time Test
Measuring Basketball Skills AAHPERD Basketball Skills Test control dribble defensive movement passing speed spot shooting
Measuring Football Skills Football Skills Test ball-changing zigzag run catching a forward pass football pass for accuracy football punt for distance kickoff 50-yard dash with football
Measuring Badminton Skills Short-Serve Test Badminton Wall- Volley Test Long-Serve Test
Golf Golf Skills Test chip shot long putt middle-distance shot drive shot
Racquetball Racquetball Skills Test Short Wall-Volley Test Long Wall-Volley Test
Tennis Tennis Skills Test Forehand and Backhand Drive Service Placement Test
Using Alternative Assessments Carefully designed checklists and rating scales (scoring rubrics) can be used for assessing the psychomotor domain. student projects event tasks peer assessment self-assessment teacher observation
