A Special Issue of Measurement in Physical Education and Exercise Science
Author: Terry M. Wood
Publisher: Psychology Press
This inaugural issue is devoted to exploring measurement, research design, and statistics issues in six subdisciplines of exercise and sport science. Originally presented at the Eighth Measurement and Evaluation Symposium, all papers in this issue reflect the work of many renowned measurement specialists and content experts in their respective fields. The articles discuss the following topics: * standards of assessment quality for physical educators and the problem of providing adequate assessment without adequate resources; * the importance of properly conceptualizing and defining appropriate research questions as the "source and solution" for measurement and design issues in reference to motor learning/control and sport and exercise psychology; * the study of individuals -- single-subject and other small-sample designs -- in contrast to the more traditional study of groups; and * the importance of computing and reporting statistical power in research.
Explores a range of basic topics covered in research courses in exercise science, kinesiology, and physical education. This work provides the information and skills needed to write effective research proposals and theses; and understand how to conduct basic studies in health, physical education, exercise science, athletic training, and recreation.
This book introduces the use of statistics to solve a variety ofproblems in exercise science and health and provides readers with asolid foundation for future research and data analysis.

A step-by-step approach to problem-solving techniques using SPSS® in the fields of sports science and physical education Featuring a clear and accessible approach to the methods, processes, and statistical techniques used in sports science and physical education, Sports Research with Analytical Solution using SPSS® emphasizes how to conduct and interpret a range of statistical analysis using SPSS. The book also addresses issues faced by research scholars in these fields by providing analytical solutions to various research problems without reliance on mathematical rigor. Logically arranged to cover both fundamental and advanced concepts, the book presents standard univariate and complex multivariate statistical techniques used in sports research such as multiple regression analysis, discriminant analysis, cluster analysis, and factor analysis. The author focuses on the treatment of various parametric and nonparametric statistical tests, which are shown through the techniques and interpretations of the SPSS outputs that are generated for each analysis. Sports Research with Analytical Solution using SPSS® also features: Numerous examples and case studies to provide readers with practical applications of the analytical concepts and techniques Plentiful screen shots throughout to help demonstrate the implementation of SPSS outputs Illustrative studies with simulated realistic data to clarify the analytical techniques covered End-of-chapter short answer questions, multiple choice questions, assignments, and practice exercises to help build a better understanding of the presented concepts A companion website with associated SPSS data files and PowerPoint® presentations for each chapter Sports Research with Analytical Solution using SPSS® is an excellent textbook for upper-undergraduate, graduate, and PhD-level courses in research methods, kinesiology, sports science, medicine, nutrition, health education, and physical education. The book is also an ideal reference for researchers and professionals in the fields of sports research, sports science, physical education, and social sciences, as well as anyone interested in learning SPSS.
