Abstract

The aim of the paper is to establish the norms of the polygon for evaluating specific skill of police officers (PolSSPl) to apply to students of the Academy of Criminalistic and Police Studies of both sexes within the subject Special Physical Education 3 - Use of Coercive Means (SPE 3). The survey included 374 third-year Academy students (232 male and 142 female ones) of undergraduate academic studies. Homogeneity of results was confirmed by variance coefficient which was 10.60 for the male students and 10.79 for the female ones. A low degree of inclination and curvature was noted with respect to the Gaussian curve, amounting to -0.067 and -0.316 or 0.145 and -0.048 for the male and the female students, respectively. Normal distribution of the result frequency indicated a high discrimination of the test which allowed defining valid normative values of the time needed for the realization of PolSSPl. Based on the mean, expressed in seconds, and the standard deviation, which amounted to 85.87±8.05 and 96.89±9.98 for male and female students respectively, the norms were established for evaluating the Academy students' performance in the practical exam of SPE 3.
