STUDENT ASSESSMENT & GRADING POLICY
Standards and benchmarks are developmentally appropriate and identify what students should know and be able to do as they progress through the grade levels. All students at their grade-levels are capable of achieving them, and talented students will be able to exceed them. The grades earned in physical education reflect student progress towards the standards: (motor skills, movement concepts, physical fitness, fitness concepts, sociological concepts).
Students’ progress towards the California Physical Education Content Standards will be demonstrated through structured observations, journals, logs, test questions, projects, essays, and portfolios. Clear detailed rubrics will be used to help students maximize performances. All students’ work will be compiled into their personal composition book portfolio. Grades will be calculated using a total points system and each gradable item will be assigned a point value based on its importance, length, and complexity. Grades will be posted on Powerschool and updated weekly.
