PE/Health Assessment Scenarios

Note: the following PE skills applications assessments are very important and SHOULD BE the major indicator of student learning in PE.

1) PE Standard 1 – Concept 1: Movement Competence- Regimented performance tests for isolated/closed “mature form” tasks (specific isolated skills rubrics) i.e. stand on line and throw ball to check form, this could also include Fitnessgram “forms” but not necessarily performance levels

(Need 1 PSDPE trained para/proctor per class session to assist pre- and post- or, better yet, have the principal help!)


2) PE Standard 1-Concept 2: Combined Skills Competence “Game” and “Dance” teacher observation scenarios for “applied” open performance tests (combination rubrics with transitions from one form to another, appropriate choices, etc.)

(Need 1 PSDPE trained para/proctor per class session to assist pre and post; iPad or video performance capturing opportunities)

Note: The following PE knowledge level assessments are very important but SHOULD NOT BE the major indicator of student learning in specials. Health/Science content should be focus of "Health" class or Colorado Health Standards-based content enriched “events” at appropriate grade levels with PE teachers referring to and highlighting applications of health content.

3) Elementary PE/Health Standards 2, 3, and 4 - Computer multiple choice/matching/etc. test (content assessment) - Standard 2, 3, and 4 which are more content/factual knowledge-focused.

(Need separate, non-PE media/computer lab time to take pre- and post-tests at the elementary level)

Secondary PE Standards 1, 2, 3, and 4 – All 4 contain much content knowledge in addition to physical skills in all standards including standard 1

Examples of content that could be measured in this computer multiple choice, matching, or diagram interpretation method:

PE - "Which organ pumps blood throughout the body?

a) lungs b) stomach c) brain d) heart"

Examples from other PSD specials:

Art - "Sculpture is an example of which type of art?

a) 3 dimensional b) 2 dimensional c) 1 dimensional d) 4 dimensional

Music - "A 1/2 note gets how many beats in 4/4 time?"

a) 4 b) 2 c) 3 d) 1

4) PSD FitnessGram Assessment Program-Sit and Reach, PACER Run, Pushups, Curlups.

Per PSD District Goal 5 Performance Indicators #1 “By 2014, establish and assessment tool to be used district wide to measure annual growth of student fitness levels."

These student growth fitness scores should not be part of a teacher effectiveness rating at the elementary level (unless students get daily PE) since 50 min. per week is not sufficient time to affect the overall fitness of our students.

(Need 2 PSDPE trained para/proctor per class session x2 class sessions to complete the 4 tests pre- and post-)
