Summary

Thoroughly revised, the Sixth Edition ofMeasurement and Evaluation in Physical Education and Exercise Scienceemphasizes 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 activitiesfrom 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.
