Building Tests for a Number of Links and Scout Sessions of the Stage of Advanced Scout

Abstract

The presence of special tests to measure these variables is an important and vital work that develops the scout in terms of scouting skills.Therefore, the importance of the research lies in finding means that have the scientific basis to measure an important aspect of the scout movement, which is the scouting side, as well as helping scout leaders in choosing scouts to represent scout teams correctly, and also can determine the current skill ability of the scout and what it will become in the future. The advanced scout stage was chosen because their ages are appropriate and at this stage they learned the arts of scout skills and have the ability to perform the tests designed by the researcher, and certainly this step will be followed by steps that concern other scout stages.Through the foregoing, the objectives of the research were as follows:- Building tests for a number of links and scout courses for the advanced scout stage.Find standard scores and levels for a number of links and scout courses for the stage of advanced scouting.The research community was represented by students of the scout teams for the preparatory stage in the Nineveh Governorate Center, and a sample of (10) schools were taken, five of which are on the right side of the city and the other five on the left side, and they were divided into the exploratory experiment sample and the construction sample as well as the application sample.As for the link tests and scout courses, the scientific steps were followed in selecting and presenting them to the experienced and specialized gentlemen as well as using the scientific foundations of honesty, consistency and objectivity. The link tests and scout courses were summarized as follows:(Closed wedge bundle / woodcut bundle / square round / straight round).After that, the results were reached through the statistical laws that were represented by (arithmetic mean / standard deviation / correlation coefficient / law (T) for differences and standard scores).The following conclusions were reached:•Obtaining special tests to measure a number of links and scouting courses for the stage of advanced scouting that enjoy the scientific foundations of honesty, consistency and objectivity as well as their natural distribution, which indicates their suitability for the research sample, namely:( Closed wedge tie test, woodcutter work test, square cycle work test, straight cycle work test) .•Reaching to Tables for the standard scores and levels of the tests for the links and the courses that were built.
