An Evaluative Study of Physical Education Activity Programs for Boys in Selected Junior High Schools of Texas

An Evaluative Study of Physical Education Activity Programs for Boys in Selected Junior High Schools of Texas

Date: August 1958
Creator: Muse, James Milton
Description: The problem undertaken in this study was to evaluate the activity phase of boys' physical education programs in selected junior high schools of Texas. As a result of visitation and observation in a number of public junior high schools in the capacity of supervising teacher for physical education majors, it appears that many physical education programs were little more than loosely supervised play periods. Apparently there was room for improvement of these programs but a method for making judgments and recommendations required some type of measuring device. However, an examination of several existing measuring techniques failed to reveal any one devoted to the junior high school level or one concerned primarily with the activity program. As a means of improving existing programs, it was concluded that some new form of evaluation must be designed.
