Monitoring and Evaluating

Regardless if a performer is a beginner such as a pupil in S1 or an elite level athlete, it is vital that they track their progress when developing any weakness for a whole host of reasons. In carrying out such monitoring and evaluating processes, performers can use a wide range of methods. In this section we will therefore cover the following:

1) Why it is important that a performer monitors and evaluates their progress.
2) Method 1: the training diary.
3) Method 2: coach feedback.
4) Method 3: re-testing.
5) Assessing and planning for future development needs.
