- Floor space
- 2 pylons (placed 5 m apart in linear formation)
You may provide a demo and give the participant practice trials if they would like to try it before being assessed. Record the number of practice trials on their assessment sheet.
“I want you to travel to the pylon, stop as close as possible without hitting it, turn around, and come back. I want you to choose the best way to move to the pylon, turn around and come back, and stop at the pylon. Ready? Move now.”
|INITIAL: Becomes acquainted with the movement task
||COMPETENT: Overall proficiency is depicted by the quality of the movement
|MERGING: Able to execute basic sequencing of the task
||PROFICIENT: Able to problem solve with present conditions
Movement Analysis Tips
- For this task, you will want to pay attention to the participant pace and fluidity when moving between the 2 pylons, as well as their ability to control the stop and turnaround at the pylon.
- You will also want to notice the control and accuracy the participant has during the stop and turnaround at the pylon. They should aim to come close to the pylon without hitting it.
- Some participants will go around the pylon and turn back to return. If they do this, clarify the instructions for them, provide a demo if needed and ask them to try the task again.
