    Means of Assessment

    The selection of evaluation tools for this course is based upon adherence to college evaluation policy regarding number and weighing of evaluations. For example, a course of three credits or more should have at least three separate evaluations.

    The following is presented as an example assessment format for this course:

    Mid-term exam 20%
    Final exam 25%
    Practical applications (labs) 30%
    Research project 25%

     

    Learning Outcomes

    Upon completion of the course the student will be able to:

    1. Describe the functions of the neuromuscular system, energy systems, cardiovascular system, respiratory system and hormonal regulation in physical activity and training.
    2. Describe the interrelationships of the neuromuscular system, energy systems, cardiovascular system, respiratory system and hormonal regulation in physical activity and training.
    3. Describe the acute sport physiological responses of the body to physical activity.
    4. Describe the sport physiological adaptations of the body systems to training.
    5. Administer fitness assessment protocols and interpret assessment data.
