In the past few years elementary school physical education has made giant strides. Because of these advances it seems necessary to determine the tangibility of the information being given to students. The problem was to construct a physical education knowledge test for sixth grade students about basic activities. The major body of concern as Foundation of Movement. One hundred-eighty items were constructed. The items were evaluated in two ways: by a panel of professional educators in elementary education and physical education, and by the use of an item analysis.
