Rationale : This course provides students with an opportunity to develop skills related to administering, evaluating, and interpreting human performance tests for children and adults. The course presents theory, and then guides students in effectively applying those theories for practical problem-solving related to the evaluation of both skill- and fitness-related performances. Required Textbook : Practical Solutions for Assessing Human Performance by J.L. Walker, Eddie Bowers Publishing Co.: Dubuque, Iowa. It is recommended that students bring their textbook to class regularly. General Information : Students are expected to read textbook materials prior to class . Chapters to be read for each lesson are listed in the tentative course schedule. Additional reading assignments and materials may be provided by the instructor. The textbook includes several “Practice Problems” or “Review Questions” at the end of each chapter. The answers to these problems and questions are also included.

Students are strongly encouraged to work the practice problems on their own, and ask questions concerning any problems that they are unable to solve. There will also be occasional pop quizzes over the reading materials or previous class topics. Such pop quizzes will not be announced in advance, and may be given either at the beginning or end of the class. Late attendance will not be given special consideration.
