Competency testing for athletic training : an honors thesis (HONRS 499)
This is a series of competency tests based on the basic competencies of athletic training required by the National Athletic Trainers' Association. The competency tests evaluate psychomotor skills in each of the six domains of athletic training. These domains are prevention, recognition and evaluation, management/treatment and disposition, rehabilitation, organization and administration, and education and counseling. The competency tests have been divided into four groups, each group representing a year in the athletic training curriculum. The tests that were included in each year correspond to the normal course work and clinical experience of an athletic training student at that point in their professional education. Each of the four sections, Freshman, Sophomore, Junior, and Senior begins with a list of psycomotor competencies from each domain to be learned in that year. Following this list are the tests that will be used to evaluate a student's competency in each skill listed.
