I. Course Overview
Measurement forms an important basis of information in physical education and exercise science
(hereafter referred to as kinesiology), and many of the career paths our students take require
considerable knowledge of the measurement process and application. PHEK358 is an introductory course
exploring the principles of measurement and evaluation in kinesiology. This course covers the evaluation of measurement quality, test construction and assessment, and computer techniques for data acquisition and signal processing relevant to issues in kinesiology. Prerequisite statistical knowledge will be put into practice when discussing typical research designs, modeling and hypothesis testing in kinesiology.

II. Class Preparation and Participation
You are expected to read each book chapter before coming to each class. In addition, it is strongly
encouraged to participate actively in class. The quantity and quality of class participation will affect student?s grade. Quiz will be given on a regular basis in order to help students keep up with the class.

III. Textbook
James R. Morrow, Allen W. Jackson, James G. Disch, Dale P. Mood (2005). Measurement and
Evaluation in Human Performance (3rd Edition). Human Kinetics Publishers. This book is available at the copy center in the library (main campus). In addition, we will also use other materials prepared by the instructor.
