Assessment In Action: The What, Why, And How Of Stress-Free Assessment
There are few topics in the world of physical education that are as taboo as assessment.
Through my work, I’ve come to realize that assessment is a huge source of stress for many physical educators. In many cases, the cause of the stress seems to come back to the fact that few teachers have received the formal training or professional development they need to make sense of what is to be assessed, why assessment matters, and how to bake assessment into one’s lessons.
This session was designed to help physical educators broaden their understanding of assessment and the role it plays in student learning. Together, we’ll explore different assessment tools strategies that pair with a variety of outcomes. We’ll also perform a lesson walkthrough in which you’ll get to see how assessment can add value to the students’ experiences.
This session was built around the following learning targets:
I can use formative assessment to support my students’ learning in physical education.
I know how to select, design, and modify assessment tools to support learning.
I understand the role of formative assessment in student learning.
