Modeling is a core practice in science and a central part of scientific literacy. We present theoretical and empirical motivation for a learning progression for scientific modeling that aims to make the practice accessible and meaningful for learners. We define scientific modeling as including the elements of the practice (constructing, using, evaluating,(More)
Little is known about the role of psychological factors in the functional recovery process of hip fracture patients. This study employed a prospective cohort design to test the hypothesis that hospitalized hip fracture patients with greater reported self-efficacy for conducting rehabilitation therapy would have a greater likelihood of recovering to a(More)
A Framework for K–12 Science Education identifies eight science and engineering practices for K–12 classrooms. These practices, along with core ideas and crosscutting concepts, define our nation’s learning goals for science. An important advance from earlier standards (AAAS 1993, NRC 1996), these practices are clearly identified not as separate learning(More)
PURPOSE/BACKGROUND A reliable and valid method of measuring and monitoring a gymnast's total physical fitness level is needed to assist female gymnasts in achieving healthy, injury-free participation in the sport. The Gymnastics Functional Measurement Tool (GFMT) was previously designed as a field-test to assess physical fitness in female competitive(More)
BACKGROUND To prepare students for pediatric practice, the professional (entry-level) curriculum must reflect the essential knowledge, skills, and abilities (KSA) required for pediatric physical therapist practice. OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to develop consensus concerning the pediatric-specific KSA that should be expected of doctor of physical(More)
PURPOSE/BACKGROUND Despite the availability of various field-tests for many competitive sports, a reliable and valid test specifically developed for use in men's gymnastics has not yet been developed. The Men's Gymnastics Functional Measurement Tool (MGFMT) was designed to assess sport-specific physical abilities in male competitive gymnasts. The purpose of(More)
BACKGROUND Clinical reasoning is an essential skill in pediatric physical therapist (PT) practice. As such, explicit instruction in clinical reasoning should be emphasized in PT education. KEY POINTS This article provides academic faculty and clinical instructors with an overview of strategies to develop and expand the clinical reasoning capacity of PT(More)
PURPOSE The purposes of this exploratory project were: (1) to evaluate the impact of power mobility training with a child who has multiple, severe impairments and (2) to determine if the child's spectrum of electroencephalography (EEG) activity changed during power mobility training. STUDY DESIGN A single-subject A-B-A-B research design was conducted with(More)
PURPOSE This case report describes the development and implementation of an intervention program that used a Power Wheelchair Trainer (Trainer) to enable an individual with severe impairments to participate in power mobility training. CASE DESCRIPTION The participant was an 18 year-old female with spastic quadriplegic cerebral palsy, Gross Motor Function(More)
