Description

Thoroughly revised, the Sixth Edition of Measurement and Evaluation in Physical Education and Exercise Science emphasizes measurement and evaluation activities as an integral part of program development and assessment in both school and non-school settings. Lacy bridges the gap between theory and practice by examining measurement and evaluation techniques for a variety of activities—from coaching and teaching to adult education and community programs. Measurement and evaluation models use real-life, practical examples that help students grasp important concepts, while showing them how to integrate measurement and evaluation techniques into program design and development. As a result, future physical education teachers and practitioners develop the skills needed to assess, evaluate, and develop more effective physical education or activity programs.
CourseSmart textbooks do not include any media or print supplements that come packaged with the bound book.
