The Use of Motor Ability Tests to Achieve Sex-Fair Ability Groupings by Margaret J Safrit( Book )

1 edition published in 1981 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The use of motor ability tests to achieve sex-fair ability groups should be considered from three standpoints--task specificity, sex differences, and individual learning differences. Motor ability is frequently described as an individual's present ability to perform motor skills. Although several motor ability tests have been constructed for secondary students, many of the tests were separate and gender-specific. The appropriateness of the experimental design, statistics, and methodology employed in the construction of many of these tests is questionable. Several factors mitigate against the use of ability tests for classification purposes. One is the theory that abilities are task specific rather than general in nature. A second factor is the basic gender differences that currently exist on certain dimensions of motor performance, primarily strength and endurance. These differences would probably lead to differences in motor ability test scores and to ability grouping by sex. Differences in rate and amount of student learning reduce the value of classifying students into discrete groups according to natural ability. Motor ability tests have limited value in the classification of secondary students and are not suitable for delineating sex-fair ability groups. (Authors/JD)
The Structure of Gross Motor Skill Patterns by Margaret J Safrit( Book )

1 edition published in 1966 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This effort involved an examination of basic, gross motor skills in a variety of sports activities through factor analytic techniques. Three alternate sets of movement factor patterns were hypothesized on the basis of a logical "opinion" analysis. Pattern "a" represented an obvious "opinion" classification of the variable by extremities used in projection. Pattern "b" involved a more complicated classification of skills, including overarm, sidearm, underarm, pushing, and striking movements. Pattern "c" was based in part on two types of projection--striking and releasing. The data were gathered over a 3-month period. Subjects were approximately 170 junior and senior high school female students. They were tested on 25 variables, all of which were measures of all-out performance. Examination of the results indicated that the original, hypothesized sets were an inadequate representation of the skills in question. The actual factor patterns were almost totally unlike the hypothesized factor patterns. (Hb)
The Pursuit of Progress Through Evaluation by Margaret J Safrit( Book )

1 edition published in 1976 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Purpose-Process Curriculum Framework (ppcf) is a guide for making curricular decisions that takes into account the overall merit of the curriculum and the merit of specific objectives. One approach to implementing this framework is to utilize a grid with the purposes represented across the top and processes represented along the side. Assume that a staff of physical education teachers has decided to use the ppcf. The first task would be to select combinations of purposes and processes that are to receive emphasis in the physical education program. By marking the appropriate cells of the grid the purposes-processes can be viewed. When all combinations of interest have been recorded on the grid, the overall framwork of the physical education curriculum has been identified. To evaluate the merit of the curriculum, the staff should set forth a written rationale for the choices made with the ppcf. This provides the outside observer with the philosophical orientation of the staff and helps to ensure that choices are made on a logical basis. Once the purpose-process combinations have been selected, the activities that will contribute to these combinations must be identified. Regardless of the selection approach, these activities must be justified as bona fide contributors to the designated combinations. To justify the selections, review the literature to obtain supporting evidence, contact sports specialists, or make the best possible logical judgment. Next, the combinations and activities should be stated as behavioral objectives including the way in which they will be evaluated. Concomitant concerns may also be identified and evaluated such as the side effects of a particular activity. (Mm)
