I have been able to develop, select and use informal, diagnostic, formative and summative assessment strategies to assess student learning via many mediums. Physical Education requires a large amount of informal, formative assessment as skill development and progression is observed during activities and game play throughout the course of the program. Individual instruction and feedback regarding technique can be given to each student when necessary during any physical activity in which the student can demonstrate their skills. A way I have been able to assess student learning is via a technique or skill checklist. This strategy allows me to informally assess each student during any lesson, whilst providing feedback regarding correction of technique for future improvement. An example of an athletics checklist can be found below.
