Yang & Foley receive Excellence in Research, Scholarship, and Outreach Award

In May 2009, Stephen Yang (Assistant Professor) and John Foley (Associate Professor) received the Excellence in Research, Scholarship, and Outreach Award in recognition of being the assessment team for a Department of Edication - Carol M. White - Physical Education Program grant.
The purpose of this project is to collect and analyze data to support the implementation of the Cortland County Physical Education Program (PEP) Grant from the Department of Education that is intended to improve physical education classes district-wide. SUNY Cortland graduate and undergraduate students will assist in the collection of teacher and student data such as attitudes towards physical activity, time spent in physical activity, and motor skill testing. Results of the assessments will be reported back to the grant administrator to include in the grant progress reports to the U.S. Department of Education. School level reports will also be generated to inform administrators and educators. (Cortland Excels)
