Assess success in physical education

January 15, 2016 at 1:00 pm Leave a comment

In the January 2016 issue of the OPHEA e-connection, it includes an article How to Assess for Student Success. OPHEA and OASPHE have released a joint position paper titled “Addressing the quality assessment to support the development of physical literacy skills in health and physical education” [one page or full document].  There are seven key messages:

  1. Physical and emotional safety is a precondition for effective learning in Health and Physical Education.
  2. Assessment is an educational process for the purpose of improving student learning.
  3. Assessment should engage students in learning, provide multiple opportunities for students to demonstrate their learning over time and provide meaningful information for educators to make informed instructional decisions.
  4. Physical fitness assessment results/scores should not be used as a grade.
  5. Assessment should be used to support the development of the Living Skills.
  6. The assessment of Body Mass Index (BMI) is not the role of the educator.
  7. Assessments used should be inclusive, student-centered, personalized and consistent throughout the year.

You have to read the article for details. Check it out!
