Kinesiology 255! !Final Exam Prepared Questions! Fall 2008
Instructions
Your task is to pick one of the questions below, prepare an answer, and write out your
answer at the final exam on December 5 in one of the examination books provided. You
may not bring any aids into the exam with you: itʼs just you and your LTM.
Each of the questions requires you to provide an answer, to argue in support of a
position, or to propose a solution to a problem. This means that presenting a lot of facts
is not enough - you must make facts work to make a case or to support your ideas.
You must use course information somewhere in your answer
Talking about the questions to others in the class (or anyone else, for that matter) is
highly encouraged. For certain questions, consulting the web might be to your benefit.
Be sure to check both academic (library, e-journals) and credible non-academic sites.
How long should your answer be? Long enough to make your case, with typical
successful answers being from 4 exam book pages to an entire exam book in length.
This question is worth 10% of your course grade.
1. One aspect to the job done by graduates of the Neurobehavioural Assessment Option
in Kinesiology is the neuropsychological testing of athletes. This testing is done to
establish baseline performance on a variety of cognitive tasks that can be used to
determine when the athlete is sufficiently recovered from a concussion to be allowed
to return to play. In a recent article published in the Archives of Neurology, Mayers
questions this methodology. What is his criticism? Do you agree with his position?
The paper is: Mayers, L. (2008). Return-to-play criteria after athletic concussion.
Archives of Neurology, 65(9), 1158-61
(available at http://archneur.ama-assn.org/cgi/content/full/65/9/1158)
2. A case study can be described as an in depth analysis of a single person. Select one
of the case studies that we have discussed during the term and describe what has
been learned from the study of this particular individual. What are the limitations of
the case study approach - can a case study be considered scientific research?
3. One of the characters in the 2003 Pixar film Finding Nemo has a disorder that we
talked about in lectures. Who is the character and what is the disorder? How accurate
is the depiction?
