  28. What qualifications for training and/or experience are necessary to teach this course? (List minimum qualifications for the instructor.) doctoral Degree in Physical Education Teacher Education or related field.
  29. Objectives: 6.1. Identify and select appropriate assessment strategies and tools to assist in determining student learning.

    6.2. Develop an understanding of the principles of evaluation evolving out of the processes (curriculum/program) of physical education.

    6.3. Develop a greater understanding of the principles of evaluation involved in the assessment of the product (the student) in physical education.

    6.4. Plan developmentally appropriate assessment strategies, using developed assessment tools, for students in physical education at the preschool, elementary, junior high school or senior high school levels, including students with special needs.

    6.5. Develop an understanding of the principles of test administration and the techniques and recommended practices for administering tests in physical activity settings, including understanding issues of validity, reliability, and bias.

    6.6. Become more familiar with major trends and current instruments used for the evaluation of both process and product in physical education and how to use current technologies to assist in assessment and evaluation.

    6.7. Plan and use developmentally appropriate physical education assessment tools for individual and small group assessment.

    6.8. Understand national content and assessment standards outlined by NASPE.

  30. Learning Outcomes: By the end of the course students will be able to:

    1. Demonstrate knowledge of assessment tools used in physical education and be able to construct and use a variety of assessment strategies. Develop Assessment Tools - Five tools will be developed. In addition to the tools one report card system will be constructed.

    2. Demonstrate understanding of how to analyze collected physical education assessment data and suggest instructional strategies and curriculum to assist student learning. Program Evaluation - Evaluate an elementary or secondary physical education program based on developmentally appropriate practices.

    3. Demonstrate knowledge of program evaluation strategies and tools. Analysis of Assessment Data - Provide a written report on findings from assessment tools. This paper requires students to not only collect and analyze data but to suggest needed changes in program, curriculum and/or instruction in order to enhance student learning.
