This site is designed as a test for athletic training knowledge. There are a number of different areas covered and one takes each section separately. The material is very specific to athletic trainers.
Type of Material:
This is a knowledge test.
The technical requirements are very simple. The site has a narrated walk-through to help in completing the tests. The student reads and then selects answers by clicking the chosen answer.
Identify Major Learning Goals:
No specific learning goals are listed.
Target Student Population:
The specific group is athletic trainers in high schools and colleges.
Prerequisite Knowledge or Skills:
One would need specific training as an athletic trainer. The areas covered include professional development and responsibilities; risk management; pathology of injury; management skills and specific sports conditions.
Evaluation and Observation
There is rather broad coverage of several areas
One can answer the sections, move to the next section and return to an earlier section when subsequent information is provided. This is a problem. Also, the exact method of grading is not clear. References for the answers are not provided.
Potential Effectiveness as a Teaching Tool
The student is provided immediate feed back concerning the score
The student can take the same test over and over until the score is increased without increasing knowledge. I was able to move to near perfect scores in the sections with subsequent completion of the sections.
