The article is about an evaluation of effects of exergaming specifically on the physical activity among the inactive children in a physical education class. In this case the researchers used a single subject with multiple variables in the design to increase the level of focus in the paper. The study measured the effects of exergaming with reference to the physical activity. The paper gives the readers a clear definition as a start off (Fogel, 2009). At the same time, the data collected is reliable. The physical activity in the paper was well established and with significant level of accuracy between the measurement and the report.
The participants in the study were from the fifth grade in a southern public elementary school. Participants chosen...
