Earlier this morning Dr. Anderson and Dr. Spevak’s University of Nevada, Reno Kinesiology class took their end of semester final. The doctors do their final a little differently than most professors. They give their students 2 hours to watch a video of an individual doing a particular movement, as they watch the video on repeat this is the question they must answer:
“In as much exquisite detail as possible, describe and explain from a kinesiology perspective what is going on in this video. Start from the toes and work your way through the ankle, knee, hip, all 3 parts of the spine, shoulder, elbow, and hand. Please include usage of bones, joints, nerves, cartilage, movements (both eccentrically and concentrically), movements in what plane, muscles (origins and insertions), possible injury(ies) that may occur in this video, and any other information you deem pertinent.”
If you click on the link posted above, the video that was used for today’s final will load and you’ll be able to see exactly what the students were faced with.
This is one students study method. Dr. Spevak described her work as “so cool,” she described it as “tiring”
