Chris N. Prewitt♦
Dr. Carla Smith, Faculty Mentor

The purpose of this project was to determine if viewing a video of a positive female role model before each Physical Education class increased the perceived participation/exertion levels of female students in a co-ed class. Students filled out a Rate of Perceived Exertion scale the week prior to viewing the video, and one week when the video was viewed. Students also filled out a 5 question survey regarding sports and their views on participation. Students pre and post video RPE scales and questionnaires will be evaluated to determine if video role models increase female student perceived participation/exertion within physical education.
