I’m working on a fitness question and need an explanation to help me understand better.
Week 4 Assignment:
Title: Week Four Assignment: Goal-setting 100 pts.
Due Date: End of Week 4
After thoroughly reviewing assigned reading, lecture notes, and websites, complete the following assignment:
Students, as you know, key components of a successful goal-setting strategy include goals that are:
specific, short-term leading to long-term, measurable, participative, attainable, realistic, and timely.
Of particular importance is the ability to set very specific short-term goals that lead directly to either intermediate or long-term goals, and these short-term goals must be measurable and must include process goals. Learning is measured, achieved, and believed through a systematic program of progressions, short-term goals. Failure to learn is often the result of not understanding this requirement and establishing correct short-term goals. In addition, there are many personal and situational factors that can and will influence/shape goal achievement and learning, such as, self-talk, analysis of outcome, and feedback
In this assignment, you are asked to complete the Goal-setting Worksheet located in the Contents, assigned reading heading, of this module, and a 3-page summary.
- Address each personal and situational factor as it relates to your athlete. Focus on the short-term goals and complete the factors shaping performance, both intrinsic and extrinsic. What you need to include here are statements about the individual and situation. In some cases, you will have to “best guess” for now. The idea is, by reflecting on each component, you gain an understanding of how each could influence your ability to help an athlete create an effective goal-setting strategy.
- Filling out your long-term goal and working backward.
- Now complete three short-term goals for each, including process goals and assessments for each short-term goal.
- Complete a summary of this plan, including APA referencing and in-text documentation.
