Polestar Studio Exams- March 2019
The Studio Certification exam consists of three parts:
1. A written exam consisting of 50 multiple choice questions (50 points)
2. A case study with written problem solving (50 points)
3. A practical one-on-one demonstration of theoretical knowledge, exercise mastery, movement teaching skills and problem solving skills with an oral defence (50 points)
The written portion of the exam (parts 1 and 2) lasts approximately two hours in total, and part 3 lasts approximately one hour. The entire exam is worth a total of 150 points.
The candidate will need to achieve an 80% pass mark on both written and theory sections of the exam.
The Studio examination tests depth of knowledge, skills and ability to facilitate movement in the Pilates-evolved environment. It is designed to establish an essential level of skill, with emphasis on safety and competence, and evaluates cognitive, affective and psychomotor domains as they pertain to movement analysis, problem solving and treatment planning.
The oral defence addresses theory, adaptations to pathology, contraindications and precautions associated with treatment planning in the Pilates-evolved environment.
