Course content
Lectures: 1. Kinanthropology. Anthropomotorics as a scientific discipline. Characteristics of human motoric activity. 2. Developmental, functional and structural analysis of motoric activity. Areas of human motoric activity. Physical activity. 3. Management of motoric activity: basic parts, the role of the psyche and consciousness. Laterality in motoric activity. 4. General characteristics, structure and division of motoric skills. Factor theories. Somatic conditionality. 5. Strength abilities: structure, biological basis, diagnostics, age and sexual peculiarities, methods of development. 6. Speed abilities: structure, biological basis, diagnostics, age and sexual peculiarities, methods of development. 7. Endurance abilities: structure, biological basis, diagnostics, age and sexual peculiarities, methods of development. 8. Coordination abilities: structure, biological basis, diagnostics, age and sexual peculiarities. 9. Coordination abilities and mobility: methods of development in children and adolescents, the relationship to motor learning. 10. Motoric skills: two concepts, fundamentals, acquisition in the process of motor learning. Transfer. 11. Human motor development: phylogenesis and ontogenesis of motoric abilities, regularities, principles, methods and factors of development. 12. Intrauterine development and human motor development in childhood. 13. Motor development of human in adolescence: pubescence and adolescence. 14. Motor development in adulthood and old age. Seminars: 1. Evaluation of human motoric abilities: main approaches, diagnostic process, motor disorders. Introduction to measurement theory. 2. Theory of testing: purposes of testing, procedure of testing. Characteristics of motoric tests: standardization, history, distribution, properties. Test systems and their examples. 3. Testing of strength and speed abilities. 4. Testing endurance and mobility abilities. 5. Testing of coordination abilities. 6. Determination of the level of physical activity - pedometers, questionnaires, Indares. 7. Theory of scaling and assessment. Selected scaling techniques used in physical education practice.

Learning activities and teaching methods
Monological explanation (lecture, presentation,briefing), Self-study (text study, reading, problematic tasks, practical tasks, experiments, research, written assignments)
  • Class attendance - 42 hours per semester
  • Semestral paper - 30 hours per semester
  • Preparation for exam - 45 hours per semester
Learning outcomes
The aim of the course is to acquaint students with the management of human motoric activity, with the characteristics of motoric abilities (strength, speed, endurance, coordination), motoric skills and physical activity of a person, with factors and periods of motor development. The course also includes a methodology for fitness testing.
Students will acquire basic professional skills in the theory of physical presumptions, motor development and motor testing.
Prerequisites
Mastering of secondary physical education curriculum. Knowledge of basic terms of kinanthropology.
KTV/ZKIN and KTV/ZKIS

Assessment methods and criteria
Written exam

Course credit requirements: Participation at the seminars, seminar project focused on the diagnosis of human motoric skills. Examination requirements: Written test.
