Abstract: Measurement and evaluation are today a vital part of the educational process. Together they provide a scientific foundation on which progress in education may be built. Physical education, as a part of the total educational program, relies on measurement and evaluation to provide a scientific basis for establishing and promoting its program. Luther Gulick, a pioneer physical educator, felt that many other fields could attribute their rise to recognition to the employment of measuring devices and evaluative techniques. It would, therefore, seem likely that the program of physical education would benefit if these general methods were applied to it. (12:950)
