Psychomotor Domain Emphasized in School Settings Includes: Skill-Related Physical Fitness Development of Movement Competence
Movement Competence Body Management Fundamental Skills Locomotor Nonlocomotor Manipulative Specialized Skills Higher Skill Attainment
Considerations for Testing Provide encouragement and incentive. Know your students. Perform good demonstrations. Avoid embarrassing situations. Create a nonthreatening environment. Experience the test (teachers). Recognize contraindicated activities.
Uses of Psychomotor Tests Provides valid measurement. Classifies students into groups. Obtain a composite profile. Assess performance and potential. Motivate students to improve. Determine achievement and grades.
Uses of Psychomotor Tests Develop class profiles. Measure student outcomes of a unit. Diagnose deficiencies. Provide educational experience. Results are used to educate the P.E. program to various constituencies (parents, administration, etc.)
Measuring Balance Static balance – ability to maintain equilibrium in a stationary position Dynamic balance – ability to move through space in a steady and stable manner Can you give an example of each?
Measuring Coordination Coordination – harmoniously integrate multiple gross motor skills into a smooth movement pattern Coordination is included in many sports skills tests using eye-hand or foot-hand interactions. Alternative assessments are often used.
Measuring Speed and Reaction Speed and reaction can be considered separately but there is a relationship. 50 yard dash Hand reaction time test
