Assessment is the collection of evidence about a student's growth in learning. Although this basic meaning remains, the practical definition of assessment has changed dramatically in recent years. Past and current sources of evidence about student learning include individual or group-administered skill tests, multiple-choice tests and standardized achievement tests. These tests help measure a discrete skill or the recall of discrete information but are limited when gathering evidence about the application of these abilities in a "real life" context.
Portfolio Assessment for K-12 Physical Education teaches you how to organize a portfolio around content standards, decide what type of portfolio to use, what items to select and when to select them. Learn different strategies for student self-assessment, conducting portfolio conferences and evaluation and grading portfolios. A sample portfolio evaluation rubric is provided.
