[Research Presentation] Background: The benefit of physical activity is highly emphasized nowadays. However, there is still no effective program for active lives of school students in Taiwan. Purpose: To evaluate the effectiveness of physical activity program, which used shuttlecock-kicking, a Chinese traditional playing, as a promotion strategy for schoolchildren. Methodology: The researchers applied action research to conduct the effective program of shttlecock-kicking in the fourth and fifth grade students of an elementary school in Taiwan. Quasi-experimental methods were utilized to understand the short-term outcomes in five months. International Physical Activity Questionnaire, the Concise Physical Activity Benefits/Barriers Scale and the Scale of Self-efficacy in physical activity were used as measure tools. And the discrepancy evaluation model was applied for the overall program evaluation. Result: Important factors revealed as positive participation by the principal, the organization of the course committee, the establishment of policies in daily school schedule changing, the integration of program issues and school curriculums, and activity skill teaching. After the five-month shuttlecock-kicking program, the improvement of students' self-efficacy in physical activity was obvious (paired t-test p<0.001). On average, the students increased 64 minutes of moderate-intensity physical activities (MPA) per week (p<0.015). In particular, the girls increased almost 30 minutes of vigorous-intensity physical activity (VPA) per week (p<0.034). The percentage of students who achieved 90 minutes of VPA per week increased 4.5%. The percentage of students who achieved 210 minutes MPA per week increased 20.3%. The percentage of students who achieved 420 minutes of MPA per week increased 13.1%. Combined with the growth effect from fall to winter, the increase of physical activity was not sufficient to counter the rapid variations in body mass index of school students. The extra contribution of this study was the use of discrepancy evaluation model, which helped the establishment of a more concrete methodology in action research.
