Abstract

KEENE STATE COLLEGE 2007-2008 COURSE PROPOSAL FORM DATE: October 12, 2007 SPONSORING PROGRAM AND CHAIR: Identify the department and chair. Include phone number and email address. Physical Education Donna Smyth, Dept. Chair 358-2808 dsmyth@keene.edu PROPOSAL SPONSOR: Identify the person(s) who should be contacted regarding the proposal. Include phone number and email address. This person is expected to attend Divisional and/or Senate Curriculum meetings to discuss the proposal. Dr. Beverly King 358-2803 bking@keene.edu TITLE SUMMARY: PE 460 Experimental Design and Analysis for Physical Education PROPOSED ACTION: Underline proposed changes . Course Addition Number Change Title Change Credit Change Description Change Prerequisite Change Course Deletion Course Replacement Other: EXISTING (OLD) DATA: Introduction to practical methods and techniques for experimental design and analysis. Topics include simple distributions, correlation, regression, basic statistical tests (both parametric and nonparametric), analysis of variance through factorial analysis, and analysis of frequencies. Prerequisite: PE major or permission of instructor. Fall, Spring. PROPOSED (NEW) COURSE TITLE: NA PROPOSED (NEW) COURSE DESCRIPTION: Introduction to practical methods and techniques for experimental design and analysis. Topics include simple distributions, correlation, regression, basic statistical tests (both parametric and nonparametric), analysis of variance through factorial analysis, and analysis of frequencies. Prerequisite: Athletic Training major or PE major or permission of instructor. Fall, Spring. LEARNING OUTCOMES: A.Students will demonstrate an ability to: 1. Adjust tests and evaluations of human movement from a perspective of physiological and anatomical maturation. 2. Test and evaluate the teaching/learning process formatively and summatively using basic statistical procedures as applied to physical education. 3. Use personal computers in basic statistical procedures. 4. Apply statistical techniques for evaluation of the implementation of teaching and learning processes. 5. Learn the mechanics of tests and measurement and the appropriate interpretation of results. B.Students will have an opportunity to develop a philosophical perspective on various methods of measurement and evaluation pertaining to human movement based on understanding the developmental maturation of students. C.Students will have an opportunity to examine and discuss: 1. The implications and ramifications of proper application of measurement, evaluation, experimental procedures. 2. The importance of proper evaluative procedures, within Physical Education programs, on individuals and society. D.Student expectations in health care administration and Athletic Training will include: 1. Cognitive Domain: constructing a basic research design and statistical interpretation pertaining to the formulation and interpretation of a case study, outcome measurement, and literature review and interpretation. 2. Psychomotor Domain: demonstrating the ability to prepare a sample design for scientific research in the areas of a case study, outcome measurement, and literature review. RATIONALE: In the past this course was required for PE majors, both Athletic Training and Teacher Certification options. It will still be required for Athletic Training majors. The prerequisite change would still allow PE majors to take the course, on a space available basis, as an elective. RESOURCES: For course proposals, include the name of the faculty member(s) who will be teaching this course, whether tenure-track, full-time, or adjunct. Indicate whether additional staffing, facilities, and/or equipment will be required. Also, consider the long-term impact of adding a course or altering a program. When a proposal has staffing, space or monetary implications, the VPAA must be consulted and his or her comments should be included in this section. Dr. Charles Beach, tenure-track faculty What additional library resources will be required? Has the library been consulted to determine the adequacy of library holdings or to estimate the cost to improve these sufficiently? None at this time. ADVISORY OPINIONS: Not necessary. No other departments will be affected.
