Abstract: The purpose of this study was to explore the possibility of developing a valid and reliable testing instrument to evaluate the volleyball forearm bounce pass as it is used in a game-like situation of serve reception. The study was based upon data collected from 100 skilled high school female volleyball players from Louisiana during the fall of 1975. A skill test was devised to measure the player's ability to receive a serve and pass the volleyball to the center front court position. The players were tested in left, canter, and right back court positions. Reliability of the test was determined by using the analysis of variance repeated measures design. The reliability was established at .19. Validity was determined by correlating the total skill test scores with the subjective ratings of three qualified judges. The judges rated each subject on ten serve receptions during game play. The Pearson Product-Moment Method was the statistical technique employed. The validity was established at .20.
