Special Issue in Symmetry: Symmetric and Asymmetric Information in Physical Education, Physical Activity and Sport
The practice of physical activity (PA), physical education (PE), and sports have a direct impact on participants’ and athletes’ physical, social, psychological, or skill-related aspects. Therefore, the measurement, evaluation, and assessment of learning, performance, and training drills have to be scientific and empirical. In order to do so, the development of adequate protocols, and the use of valid and reliable procedures of measurement and evaluation are required to increase the applicability of PA, PE, and sports plans and training. Therefore, the current Special Issue of the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health, “Measurement and Evaluation in Physical education, Physical Activity, and Sports”, provides an opportunity to submit high-quality research focused on multidisciplinary approaches to measurement and assessment in PA, PE, and sports. The Guest Editors are interested in the following: (i) the validation process of instruments and tools used to measure and evaluate in PA, PE, and sport (i.e., including the validation of the instrument and the process of reliability); (ii) the assessment of different protocols of measurement to test physical, psychological, or performance measures in PA, PE, and sport (i.e., comparisons between training routines, competition level, or different populations); and (iii) quantitative and qualitative research that increases the research knowledge of PA, PE, and sport using different instruments of assessment (questionnaires, observation sheets, interviews, scientific equipment, new technologies, etc.). The submission of other topics are welcome and can be discussed with the Guest Editors.Prof. Miguel Ángel Gómez-Ruano
