Abstract: The purpose of this study was to determine the feasibility of using Roberton and Halverson's component approach to assess the developmental sequences of the hop and skip in an actual K-3 public school situation. More specifically, the study examined the implementation procedures involving objectivity training, videotaping, and coding along with parental reactions to developmental information. Subjects were 206 male and female students in grades K-3 in one school. The coders were two physical education practitioners from the same school. Subjects were videotaped performing two skills: hop and skip.
