Documenting Within the Health and Physical Education Assessment Project the Inclusion of Technology Standards to Promote Teaching and Learning

Department of Kinesiology and Health

Inclusion of the six Technology Foundation Standards for Students is currently integrated into KH 4530, Curriculum and Instruction for Health Education, during the field-based block experience. Standards are evaluated by completion of competencies outlined in a variety of course rubrics . These same rubrics are used to evaluate technology standards during student teaching. Data from the rubrics determine individual student course grades and have not been analyzed and reported within a specific evaluation design. Sandra Owen  teaches and supervises these student experiences . She has experience in using the Milken  Exchange Seven Dimensions Analysis model.

The Biomechanics course (KH 3600) and Instructional Skills for Health and Physical Education course (KH 3200) provide an opportunity to measure baseline student technology skills since these courses are taken prior to the Curriculum and Instruction for Health Education course.

This proposal will establish an ongoing technology evaluation component of the existing Health and Physical Education Assessment Project, recently nominated by Georgia State University for the Regents Award for Teaching Excellence.

Selected standards to be incorporated and evaluated:

a.       Professional Preparation Profile (prior to student teaching) KH 4530: #5, 6, 8, 9, 14, 15, 20, 24

b.       Student Teaching Performance (#3, 5, 7) Health portion will specifically relate to instructional standards while the physical education portion will relate to the assistive technology standards and instruction standards.

Selected questions from the Milken Exchange Seven Dimensions Analysis Model will comprise a pre, interim, and post survey instrument (Quantitative)to be administered in  KH 3200 (spring,2001); KH 3600 (summer, 2001), KH 4530 (fall,2001); and  student teaching spring(2002). This will provide a full rotation of HPE majors. Student portfolios and student productions (videos, transparencies, lessons) as well as on-line discussions and problem-solving/critical thinking assignments will be evaluated using established rubrics. The existing data collection of the HPE Assessment Project will lend interesting correlations to efficacy indicators.
