Rationale for the Plan

During the AY' 2018-2019 PG 1 and its PSLOs 1.1, 1.2 & 1.3 and PSLO 4.1 were assessed. For the upcoming AY 2019-2020 we will follow the 5-year plan and assess a PG that thus far was not assessed, PG 2. This goal is the application of the knowledge covered by PG 1.

Data Collection and Evaluation

• The data will be collected from PE 452, a capstone course. On average 17-19 Movement Science students are enrolled in the course per semester. • The assessment will take place during a practical exam that takes place at the last session of the semester. During the exam, sutdents are required to select the appropriate insturments necessary for conducting a well-rounded fitness assessment, administer the fitness assessment, and analyze the collected data. • Dr. Werber-Zion, the course instructor will administer the practical exam. • The department assessment committee will assist in evaluating, analyzing, and interpreting the data.
