The new buzz word for physical activity folks – ASSESSMENT!! Folks that are not actually in a classroom lose perspective of this issue. In a nutshell- keep it simple! Teachers assess students daily to determine the level of the class and also how to pace the class, which is “formative assessment”. When you are at the end of a unit of instruction and give the final test, you are performing a “summative assessment”. Physical activity specialists, PE and Dance teachers perform these tasks daily without even thinking about it- don’t get caught up in the “edu-speak”!! I bet you are already doing it!!
