Companion Guide to Measurement and Evaluation for Kinesiology serves as a reference on how to set-up, perform, and administer an array of physical performance field tests. This practical guide is organized by the type of physical parameter to be tested so that readers can quickly determine the population for each physical test, what equipment is needed, how many test assistants are required, how to set-up and administer the test, how to score the test, and how test performers commonly conduct the test incorrectly. Each test has several pictures or drawings to help explain how the administrator should conduct the test.

This resource is perfect for use in conjunction with a measurement and evaluation text or as a standalone quick-reference for athletic trainers, strength and conditioning professionals, personal trainers, fitness professionals, and PE teachers/coaches.
