Abstract: This investigation sought to develop a physical education multimedia presentation designed to inform students about the UNC-G General Physical Education Program, and to determine the effect of the presentation on the program knowledges of incoming freshmen students. The preliminary preparation included the following steps: (a) informal interviews with the UNC-G physical education faculty, (b) the development of a knowledge test, and (c) the development of a physical education multimedia presentation. Twelve members of the UNC-G physical education faculty were interviewed during the spring semester, 1977. The results of the interviews were utilized in determining the content of the knowledge test and the multimedia presentation. A criterion-referenced mastery test consisting of 34 true/false items was constructed to measure student knowledges about the UNC-G General Physical Education Program. Content validity was established based upon the judgment of three selected test judges. The physical education multimedia presentation consisted of: (a) a slide/tape series, (b) a set of five activity booklets, and (c) an activity brochure.
