Abstract: Measurement and Evaluation in Human Performance, Sixth Edition With HKPropel Access, guides students through the essentials of collecting and analyzing data of human performance and using that data in practical application. Introductory algebraic concepts are combined with the technological capabilities of Microsoft Excel and IBM...s SPSS software to aid students in calculations and data analysis. Focusing on the core concepts of reliability and validity of data, the text provides all the necessary tools for evidence-based decision making to apply in kinesiology, sport and exercise science, physical therapy, allied health, physical education, health, and fitness.The sixth edition of Measurement and Evaluation in Human Performance has been reorganized to offer a logical progression of information that makes it easy for instructors and students to apply the content to their specific courses and career goals. It is enhanced with added expertise from new coauthor Weimo Zhu, an internationally known scholar in Kinesmetrics who served as the chair of the Measurement and Evaluation Council of SHAPE America. The amount of information on physical activity assessment has been increased across all chapters, and the text includes new content about sport video analysis apps, employment-related testing, and more.The text is divided into four parts. Part I introduces the concepts of measurement and evaluation and their importance for decision making in human performance. Part II explains the use of statistics as core tools and resources for these evaluations and explains the various forms of statistical procedures often used in measurement. Part III presents reliability and validity from theoretical, comprehensive, and criterion-referenced perspectives. Skills gained through previous sections are applied to human performance issues such as evaluating a person...s aerobic capacity or muscular strength. Part IV applies all of the content from the previous sections to practical settings where students will use the knowledge gained in the text, covering topics like fitness assessment, performance assessment, motor behavior, and sport and exercise psychology.
