2.1.Course objectives
The objectives are: to present fundamental kinesiometric principles of measurement and assessment in kinesiology, with special emphasis on measurement and assessment of fitness; to present theoretical and practical knowledge of organizing and performing laboratory and field testing of different fitness components; to present modes of interpretation of fitness testing results; to present procedures for determining risks associated with exercise and risk factors in fitness measurement and assessment.
2.2.Course enrolment requirements and entry competences required for the course
Completed: Basic Kinesiological Transformations, Functional Anatomy, Biomechanics, Physiology of Sport and Exercise, and Training Theory.
2.3.Learning outcomes at the level of the programme to which the course contributes
-ability to reflect on and solve practical kinesiological problems independently and critically;
-ability to plan, programme, and implement transformational processes in the areas of applied kinesiology;
-ability to promote physical exercise as means of health promotion and protection in individuals of different ages, gender, and level of physical activity.
2.4.Learning outcomes expected at the level of the course (4 to 10 learning outcomes)
After completing the course and passing the exam, students will be able to:
-understand fundamental kinesiometric principles of measurement and assessment of fitness in healthy individuals;
-organize and conduct fitness testing in healthy individuals and interprete the testing results;
-apply results of fitness testing in setting and accomplishing realistic transformational goals;
-understand basic ways of determining risks associated with exercise and risk factors in fitness measurement and assessment.
