Developmental and Adapted Physical Activity Assessment 2nd Edition

Variables in assessment instruments and in the administration and interpretation of tests can sometimes generate more questions than answers. That’s why special education and adapted physical activity teachers have come to rely on Developmental and Adapted Physical Activity Assessment. Now in its second edition, this is the one of the only textbooks that focuses solely on assessment, providing valuable and in-depth clarity, guidance, and understanding in the principles and practical applications of assessment.

Effective Physical Education Content and Instruction With Web Resource

As a physical educator (or student preparing to become one), you need to know more than the skills, techniques, and tactics of the sports and activities you teach. You need to understand, among other things, how to create task progressions, how to organize and adapt those tasks, and how to detect and correct student errors. Effective Physical Education Content and Instruction will help you learn how to do just that.
