Abstract: The purpose of the study was to construct an objective basketball knowledge examination for college women in required physical education classes. It was hoped that the examination would be a reliable and valid measure of the student's general knowledge of the sport. Fifty four-choice multiple-choice questions were constructed covering the following topics: rules, etiquette and procedure, techniques and skills, strategy and tactics, terminology, history and equipment, and safety. All rules questions were based on the Division for Girls and Women's Sports Basketball Guide September 1964-September 1965. Sixteen colleges and universities were asked to participate in the study. Several schools were unable to administer the test one of the required dates. A total of 303 answer sheets were returned from five schools.
