Grading Protocols
Sports Science: Within 24-48 hours of acceptance, first time students who make tuition payment will receive a username and password to access the online units (Physiology, Training Theory, Biomechanics and Sports Psychology/Skill Acquisition) and lectures provided by the USATF sports science team. This interactive format will allow students to learn at their own leisure and gain invaluable tips from one of the leaders in the online learning industry. All sports science classroom work must be completed prior to midnight, August 2, 2019. Alumni are not eligible to re-enroll in the sports science modules.
Each sports science unit is comprised of two specific tasks:
  1. Complete all unit quizzes with satisfactory score
  2. Complete all unit insight discussions with satisfactory score
Event Specific Evaluation
Each event group is comprised of three specific tasks:
  1. Session plan developed by each student will be collected and reviewed on Wednesday morning of the event specific lecture (a one-page explanation of a training session to include all the appropriate components). This is an accepted or not accepted evaluation by the event instructors. In the event that a student does not present an acceptable session plan, the instructors will require additional time be spent during the course day to correct the written assignment.
  2. Written exam of 25-30 multiple-choice questions, true false and/or short answer response (80% grade is required to pass the exam). This is the only graded evaluation for passing the class. It is a hard copy test, which is graded onsite for students to receive a certificate.
  3. Either a group presentation or individual oral exam, determined by the event lecturers, may be assigned as part of the class participation in the course. No grade is attached to this assignment, but it is a valuable part of course to evaluate their peers in class.
There is a onetime retest within 30 days of completion of the school for a student who fails to meet the 80% passing grade.
