Abstract: The purpose of this paper was to study evaluation of physical education and sport science using scientific measuring instrument in the evaluation of teaching, coaching and research work. For its simplicity the paper used descriptive approach that structured into abstract, introduction, conclusion and recommendation. It was observed that there was a limited application of evaluation by means of measuring instrument due to different factors such as resource, fund etc. at school, college and universities. Because of this limitation the predominantly functional method of evaluation at school and college level was the usual written exam and subjective judgment of physical performance. Beside Some of the needed scientific standard measuring instrument used for evaluation it was indicated Hi-tech technology, computer, GPS, video, camera and simulation system used for evaluation. However, because of the limited resource there was a gap on the application part of evaluation using instrumentation which was extremely important in sport teaching, training and competition. The paper specifies the advantage, the need, and challenges in using scientific measuring instrument in physical education and sport. Based on literature review it provide necessary measure to be taken to solve problem of evaluation using instrument. Some important points were reflected under recommendation that will very essential to the current demand of the development of sport at school, college and university level in teaching, training, competition and research work related the topic.
