Content

Accurate analysis of data is fundamental to sports scientists’ everyday work practice. High performance managers and senior sports scientists are involved in evaluating existing sports science programs. In this unit, students will undertake learning activities that will develop and assess their ability to manage data; conduct analyses appropriate for data type and collection method; interpret their analyses and communicate the results to fellow sports scientists. Students will also learn how to evaluate an existing sports science program and communicate their results to a high-performance manager. Students will be provided with learning materials (e.g., selected readings, videos, existing sports science data sets) prior to online activities where their knowledge can be formatively assessed and feedback can be provided.

Summative assessments will challenge students’ ability to apply their knowledge and communicate their understanding in authentic contexts to fellow sports scientists, coaches or high performance managers.
