4Considerations 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.
5Uses 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.
6Uses 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.)
8Measuring BalanceStatic balance – ability to maintain equilibrium in a stationary positionDynamic balance – ability to move through space in a steady and stable mannerCan you give an example of each?
9Measuring Coordination Coordination – harmoniously integrate multiple gross motor skills into a smooth movement patternCoordination is included in many sports skills tests using eye-hand or foot-hand interactions.Alternative assessments are often used.
10Measuring Speed and Reaction Speed and reaction can be considered separately but there is a relationship.50 yard dashHand reaction time test
