賽馬會家校童喜動計劃 – 自動化基礎動作技能評估
Traditionally, assessments of fundamental movement skills (FMS) are performed by trained observers using internationally-adopted rating rubicks (e.g. TGMD-3); in this project, an automated rating system was developed to provide immediate and objective assessments of children’s FMS.
發展階段｜STAGE OF DEVELOPMENT
- In comparison to traditional methods, the system enables faster assessment, and reduces potential inter‐rater inconsistencies.
- Videos clips and scores collected are automatically uploaded to cloud servers, and can be reviewed through an online portal at any time.
- The system can enhance teachers’ ability to track and review students’ progresses, and thus improve their teaching in these important skills.
如何解決市場痛點｜RESPONSE TO MARKET PAIN POINTS
Fundamental movement skills are considered the “building blocks” of more complex sport and exercise skills. Proficiency in these skills is also linked with positive behavioral and health outcomes, including better cardiovascular fitness, healthier weight, more physical activity, and better executive functioning in children. Despite its importance in children’s motor skill development and potential impact on their health, these skills are not assessed extensively due to time and accuracy issues. In this project, we developed an automated system to provide objective, real‐time assessment of these skills using 3D motion cameras (i.e., Microsoft Kinect).
