Project Description

Development of the Furtado-Gallagher Movement Skill Assessment

Project Abstract

The National Association for Sport and Physical Education (NASPE) emphasizes in its second edition of the National Standards for Physical Education the importance of linking instruction and assessment in physical education. NASPE standards reflect what students should know and be able to do as a result of a quality physical education (NASPE, 2004). This link is even more beneficial to students and teachers alike when assessment is aligned with the NASPE content standards. Therefore, the purpose of this study is to develop a criterion-referenced assessment tool to test movement concepts and fundamental movement skills of children ages 3 through 10 and provide evidence for content-related validity. An attempt was made to develop an assessment tool that is tied closely to the postulates of the National Standards for Physical Education (NASPE, 2004). The gathering of evidence for content-related validity will be accomplished through judgments of a panel of 20 content experts (professors = 8; and PE teachers = 12). An Internet-based item review form will be used to collect information from experts.
