Step 6 - Assessment

A common curriculum component, addressed briefly here but in considerably more depth in PE305

Importance l.jpg

  • Assessment represents the fruition (realization) of all the planning and instruction! It represents student learning of the content delineated in standards 9-14.

    • Assessment is a weak area in physical education yet education today is about accountability. Why is this a problem?

    • Article on HS PE

Alignment l.jpg

  • Assessment should align with?

    • The domains (P, C, A)


    • The standards (CT 9-14)

Step 6 assessment why assess l.jpg
Step 6 – AssessmentWhy Assess

  • Identify student strengths and weaknesses

  • Inform teaching and curricular change

  • Motivate and/or challenge students

  • Keep students on task

  • Determine entry skill level

  • Determine grades, level of performance, and achievement of state/national standards

    • Demonstrate learning as a result of instruction

  • Communicate with parents/guardians

Appropriate practices NASPE

  • Role of assessment

    • appropriate practice: teacher decisions about instruction and evaluation of student progress are based on continuous systematic observations and assessment of student progress in relation to the final product, as opposed to one summative evaluation. Assessment is an integral part of planning, student feedback and goal setting.

    • inappropriate practice: students are evaluated and assessed based on one or two assessments. Students are assessed using inconsistent, arbitrary measures that do not reflect the instructional objectives or learning opportunities.

Slide7 l.jpg

Appropriate practices NASPE

  • Achievement

    • appropriate practice: assessment is based upon clearly defined student goals related to appropriate (psychomotor, cognitive, and affective) content. Criteria for determining student achievement are clearly identified. Student grades are based upon individual progress toward the achievement of predetermined goals.

    • inappropriate practice: students are evaluated and graded on non-content related factors (participation, dress, effort). Students are graded on a single measure that is not valid or reliable.

Slide8 l.jpg


  • Attendance/dress… 40%

  • Daily effort/attitude/ participation ………. 30%

  • Knowledge (written test)…………...…………10%

  • Skill (skills test)……....20%

    • 100%

Attendance/dress ……… 10%

Completion of formative assessments………….. 60%

Summative assessment… 30%

Types of Assessment

  • Authentic

    • Assessment done during activity; often the best method in PE (There’s NO excuse for not having time to assess)

  • Formative

    • Assess throughout (better learning gains over summative assessment)

  • Summative

    • Assess at the end (OK if done in conjunction with formative assessment)

  • Norm-referenced

    • President’s challenge (percentiles)

  • Criterion-referenced

    • Fitnessgram or any set criteria

Ct standard 9 l.jpg
CT Standard 9:

Demonstrates competency in motor skills and movement patterns needed to perform a variety of physical activities

Ct standard 911 l.jpg
CT Standard 9:

  • Scoring rubric - authentic, or rotating station, or pull-out group

    • Generic Rubrics for Several Activities: Example 1and2

    • Basketball 4th(skill testing)

    • Jumping 1st

    • Underhand VB Serve

    • Strategy

    • Several sample rubrics

  • Checklist– whole class

  • Video analysis – record and view later

    • May also do in real-time (Farmington badminton ex.)

  • Jigsaw Model - Evaluate students teaching a lesson (create a rubric)

Ct standard 912 l.jpg
CT Standard 9

  • Create and demonstrate a routine (gymnastics, etc) including grades for being an audience member

  • Self-Assessment – student assessment of oneself

    • Catching example

  • Peer Assessment - students assessment of one another

    • Students give feedback on the cues only

    • Teacher should practice with students the giving and receiving of meaningful feedback

  • Establish guidelines:

    • Give corrective and positive feedback together

    • Give only positive feedback

  • Don’t attach grades to peer feedback, completion scores only

  • Advantages: socialization, teaching of others, offsets larger class sizes, peer and self improvement, and greater interaction with the learning objectives

  • Techniques: task cards, criteria sheets

  • Non-traditional

    • Making a video of a skill being correctly executed

  • Ct standard 10 l.jpg
    CT Standard 10:

    Demonstrates understanding of movement concepts, principles, strategies, and tactics as they apply to the learning and performance of physical activities

    Ct standard 1014 l.jpg
    CT Standard 10:

    • Student journals or learning logs – For example, attitudes about throwing and catching ability

    • Traditional pencil/paper quizzes (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10)

      • Many available on PECentral


    • Create and post a monthly bulletin board (upper grades)

    • Individual or Group assignments (personal fitness program, wellness plan, research of community physical activity opportunities)

    • Picture project: identify &/or correct skill cues from a photograph or demonstration

    • Sportfolio (1, 2)

    • Check for Understanding 7-up style: Thumbs up, thumbs down

      • Students can’t see one another’s answers, use a checklist for scoring

      • Assess on fitness knowledge, rules, strategies, nutrition etc

    • Gym exit survey

    • Pedometers – Write about improvement over time, do math calculations, create goals, etc…

    Ct standard 11 l.jpg
    CT Standard 11:

    Participates regularly in physical activity

    • K-2: Draw pictures or ask students how they engage in physical activity at home

    • 3-12: Create a home activity log in conjunction with the regular classroom teacher

    • Have parents fill out a survey about their child

    Ct standard 1116 l.jpg
    CT Standard 11:

    Participates regularly in physical activity

    • 3-12: Practicum – Students required to participate in physical activity field experiences

      • Athletes are not exempted

      • Form partnerships with local community resources (fitness centers, tennis clubs, park and recreation leagues, equestrian centers, etc) where students must have their participation verified by a signature

        • Negotiate discounts or free trial for students

      • Require X number of hours per month or year; require X number of locations per year

    Ct standard 12 l.jpg
    CT Standard 12:

    Achieves and maintains a health-enhancing level of physical fitness.

    Assessing Fitness Levels – There are conflicting viewpoints on how to assess health-related fitness. Some ideas:

    • Completion of the task

      • Self-developed form

    • Criterion referenced - fitnessgram (A=healthy fitness, C=needs improvement)

      • Fitnessgram profile

    • Percentile score

      • Equate percentile score to a grade (i.e. 80-100=A, 70-80=B, etc) and allow for improvement (i.e. improve 5 points=A, improve 3=B, etc)

      • How to calculate percentiles for your school: Percentile Achievement Scores 

    Ct standard 12 additional fitness considerations l.jpg
    CT Standard 12: Additional Fitness Considerations

    • I advocate creating a Cumulative Fitness Report which tracks a students health related fitness achievement/scores K-12. When a student leaves elementary school, it goes with them to middle school and beyond.

    • Overweight/Obese Students

      • PE teachers have a responsibility to help these students because overweight children usually become overweight adults.

        • Discussed more in PE 406, APE.

    Ct standards 13 and 14 l.jpg
    CT Standards 13 and 14:

    • CT Standard 13: Students will exhibit responsible personal and social behavior that respects self and others in physical activity settings

    • CT Standard 14: Students will choose physical activity for health, enjoyment, challenge, self-expression and/or social interaction to sustain a physically active

    Ct standards 13 and 1420 l.jpg
    CT Standards 13 and 14:

    • Farmington levels of involvement

    • Naugatuck daily grading scale

    • Hellison’s model

    • Journals – “The most important thing that I learned today was…”

    • Affective Rubric – scale of criteria that explains possible levels of performance (1, 2)

    Communication l.jpg

    • Communicating grades is important both in communicating student progress, measuring student learning in terms of program improvement, and advocacy for PE both inside and outside school.

      • For example, with fitness assessments, you could send home 2-sided flyer. One side has their child’s fitnessgram results and how to interpret them. The second side could have:

        • Information about health and physical activity

        • Information about the PE program

        • An after-school health and physical activity workshop sponsored by the PE teacher

    With parents l.jpg
    with Parents…

    • Newsletter combined with…

    • Report Card

    Slide23 l.jpg

    Sample TOTAL Rubric- combines all aspects of grading

    • A. Application of Fitness Concepts 30%

    • B. Application of Movement Concepts 30%

    • Application of Personal and Social

    • Responsibility Concepts 30%

    • D. Physical Education Reading/Writing 10% 100%
