Learning, Teaching and Assessment (LTA) Approach:
Learning & teaching methods including their alignment to LOs
This module will be taught through a series of lectures, tutorials, and class based practicals which develop theory into practice. Coursework develops analysis theory demonstrated with practical material (LO 2). Students will be able to gather performance observations using a variety of techniques (LOs 3 & 5). A performance observation allows the student to demonstrate a variety of the most appropriate analysis methods and detail their findings through analysis of the data gathered (LOs 1 & 4).

Embedding of employability/ PDP/ scholarship skills
Students will be required to analyse a performance using a variety of industry based techniques and software. Results from this analysis will show a competence and understanding of the requirements to employers. Students will be required to develop communications and IT skills through the use of industry software (Silicon Coach & Focus). Students will be required to become competent in the use of video cameras, movie editing and software analysis.



Formative Assessment:
A formative assessment will be used through a series of peer reflection where students can analyse, question and make recommendations during the tutorial process.

Each student is required to produce a project detailing how the observation was conducted with reasons as to why this was the most appropriate method.

Findings should be presented in an ‘athlete friendly’ format and include a critical evaluation of the methods used.


Summative Assessment:
Summative assessment will be applied though a proposal and project. The project proposal will be submitted and approved before a performance analysis is undertaken. The proposal must indicate the skill and activity to be observed and indicate how the performance can be measured and analysed.

Description of module content:

Introduction to Notation and Games Analysis. Identification of factors to be analysed and techniques for data collection from team games. Identification of factors to be analysed and techniques for data collection from individual sports and games. Methods of analysis of individual play within team games. Presentation of results. Practical use of commercial software.

Learning Outcomes for module:

LO1: Apply the concept and uses of notational techniques in the analysis of sports and games.
LO2: Utilise and implement a suitable protocol to collect the appropriate data in order to undertake such an analysis in a specific sport of their own choosing
LO3: Critically analyse the data obtained and validate the reasons for the selection of the analysis methods used.
LO4: Critically reflect the results of the data obtained and the limitations of the analysis used.
LO5: Present the use of video recording, spreadsheet, and statistical techniques.
