Abstract: The purposes of this study were to construct and standardize an objective knowledge test in lacrosse appropriate for college women; to devise skill tests which would objectively measure selected lacrosse playing skills of college women who had had little or no previous experience in lacrosse; and to establish a battery of lacrosse tests which would effectively measure skills and knowledges in lacrosse. One hundred thirty-five subjects, who were freshman college women enrolled in five beginning lacrosse classes taught by the writer at Lynchburg College during the spring of 1967, participated in this study. A seventy item, four-choice, multiple-choice knowledge test was constructed. From the items which met selection criteria, as determined by an item analysis, forty items were chosen for the final test. The reliability coefficient of the Revised Lacrosse Knowledge Test was fairly low (.63); however, the items possessed adequate discriminating power and degrees of difficulty.
