Assessment methods and Criteria
Testing of learning and evaluation criteria
A passing grade on the following practical trials is necessary in order to take the final interview:
- Test of the ability to perform basic preparatory exercises (stride, jumps, imitative exercises, analytical and facilitative exercises)
- Timed 60-m dash with starting blocks
- Timed 1000-m run with starting blocks
- Timed 60-m hurdle race with starting blocks
- Javelin throw and jumping, with assessment of the execution
The final exam consists of an interview. Questions may include: describing the techniques of the specialties covered during the course and their history, presentation of preparatory exercises and grading for learning a specialty, explanation of common errors and suggestions for their correction, discussion on the means and methods of training in youth categories, examples of exercises for training more advanced athletes, explanation of the criteria and basic concepts underpinning the theory of training and its planning.
Evaluation will be based on: acquisition of theoretical skills, use of appropriate terminology and clarity of explanation, ability to connect theoretical and practical skills.
The final grade will be expressed in 30/30 points based on the results of the interview and the practical trials.
