Register Now for Webinar on Rubric Creation
NATA
Jamie Mansell, PhD, LAT, ATC, is presenting "Creating an Effective Rubric for Classroom and Clinical Experiences" at 11 a.m. CT on July 15. Rubrics have been described as an assessment tool that saves time grading, conveys objective feedback and promotes student learning. In this session, participants will look at how rubrics can accomplish these three worthwhile objectives, as well as explore their limitations and engage in the process of rubric development. Within athletic training education, there are several opportunities that lend themselves to the use of rubrics. Not only can they be effective for written, oral and group assignments, but during practical and clinically-based assessments, rubrics can be used by multiple instructors, preceptors and peers with similar outcome measurements.

Program Will Provide Athletic Trainers for St. Louis High School Football
St. Louis Post-Dispatch
Athletic trainers are often considered a luxury that some high schools are fortunate to afford. However, it is estimated that nearly two-thirds nationally do not have dedicated medical expertise on campus to treat athletes. A consortium of organizations sought to close the gap last year. The NFL and three other groups began funding a program to make trainers available to more high school athletes, and the St. Louis Rams have joined the initiative.

HealthDay via U.S. News & World Report
Young female athletes appear to face a far greater risk for repetitive motion injuries than young males do, new research suggests. The finding stems from an analysis that looked at overuse injuries among 3,000 male and female high school athletes participating in 20 different sports.

School Coaches Often Ill-Equipped to Spot, Manage Concussions
Medical Xpress
U.S. middle school and high school coaches may not be sufficiently trained and equipped to quickly recognize concussions in student athletes, two new studies suggest. Without solid concussion training, coaches may mishandle a student's head injury, experts said. "High school coaches are the primary responders on the field when head injuries occur, and every state now has some sort of mandate when it comes to the handling of student athlete concussions, which is great," said Meredith Madden, a resident in athletic training at Boston College.
