In this paper we propose to analyze ways to introduce multimedia methods in the evaluation process in the discipline of physical education and sports, by increasing the objectivity of evaluation and self-evaluation.
Material and Methods
During the research, 20 students aged 12–13 were filmed and evaluated. Movement analysis software, Kinovea application, version 0.8.15, was used to analyze the recorded image.
Through the centralized data represented in graphs and tables, at the first evaluation, the control group obtained results closer to the execution model by an average of 0.62% in 5 of the 6 samples. Following the application of the method researched in the paper, namely the viewing of the records from the first evaluation with biomechanically analyzed frames, the relationship between the two groups changes. At the final evaluation, the research group obtains results closer to the execution model in all 6 samples, on average by -4.61%.
The results obtained after applying the statistical parameters (mean) of video recording and analysis reveal a progress in the technical preparation of students, the mistakes being detected more easily and more concretely, the students forming a clear image of their own execution and mistakes.
