  Assessment and Evaluation
Assessment is the systematic process of gathering information about students‚ learning in order to describe what they know, are able to do, and are working towards. The information collected from assessment allows teachers to describe each student's achievement in regards to learning and performance. This information is used for the following purposes:
* To provide students with information on their progress and status
* To motivate students to improve their performance
* To make a judgment about the effectiveness of teaching
* To provide the teacher information on the current status of students in relation to objectives
* To evaluate the curriculum
* To place students in the appropriate instructional group
* To provide the physical education teacher objective information on the students‚ status for grading purposes
Students in our Physical Education program are constantly being assessed by teacher, self, and other students. We stress the fact that assessment and evaluations are not to be thought of as negative stress tests. We (student and teacher) see evaluation and assessments as an excellent way for students and teachers to improve their performance.
Examples of How We Assess and Evaluate in Physical Education:
   video-tape
   partner and individual skill checklists
   teacher observation
   student surveys
   pictorial analysis
   short written test
   motor screen (formal or through lesson design)
   group discussion with report
   written movement sequences (word or pictorial)
   grade level goal charts
   class goal charts
   fitness - pre test, mid test, post test

            C..U..R..R..I..C..L..U..M

Phase I
Basic Movement
Phase II
Fundamental/Developmental Skills
Phase III
Specialized Movement Skills
Cognitive Development
A. Basic understanding about the human
    body in movement:
    1. movement vocabulary
    2. capabilities and limitations
    3. basic concepts related to
        biomechanical principles
        
B. Plan and order movement
        
C. Divergent thinking
A. Knowledge concerning efficient and
    effective human movement:
  1. principles of movement
  2. laws of motion
        
        
        
B. Movement vocabulary
        
C. Convergent  thinking
A. Transfer and application of concepts
    from Phases I and II to more complex
    movement skills.
     
  
        
        
B. Movement vocabulary
        
C. Reflective thinking
Psychomotor Development
Explore human movement:
1. to develop variety (quantity)
2. to develop control and kinesthesia
(quality)
3. to direct and connect movements
Develop and refine the
fundamental/developmental skills:
    1. locomotor
    2. nonlocomotor
    3. manipulative
Combine and refine
fundamental/developmental skills into
specialized movement skills:
    1. sport skills
    2. dance skills
    3. gymnastic skills
    4. leisure-time activities etc.
Affective Domain (Values)
Values related to self:
     1. self-directed
     2. self-inquiry
     3. self-confidence
     4. self-discipline
     5. self-acceptance
     6. self-determination
        
Values related to others:
     1. acceptance
     2. cooperation
     3. consideration
     4. appreciation

Continued development of items in
Phase I as movement tasks and personal
relations become more complex.
        

Continued development of items in
Phases I and II as tasks become more
specific and partner/group work
more involved.
