Physical Education Profile – Commencement Level Assessment Tool
The Physical Education Profile was developed under the leadership of the NYS Education Department’s Office of Curriculum, Instruction and Instructional Technology with significant contributions from a variety of physical education professionals across the state, including those from the New York State Association for Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance, Inc. and the Jefferson-Lewis-Herkimer-Oneida Board of Cooperative Educational Services.
Its purpose is two fold. First and foremost it is an interactive tool that provides supportive evidence of individual student progress in achieving the physical education portion of the NYS learning standards for Health Physical Education and Family and Consumer Science at the commencement level. Secondly, it provides a rich collection of data to guide physical education program enhancements.
Levels of Self-Responsibility – we ask students to work towards a Level 3 on a daily basis
n Level 4: Caring (Students at Level 4, in addition to respecting others, participating, and being self-directed, are motivated to extend their sense of responsibility beyond themselves by cooperating, giving support, showing concern, and helping.
n Level 3: Self-direction (Students at Level 3 not only show respect and participation but also are able to work without direct supervision. They can identify their own needs and begin to plan and carry out their physical education programs.
n Level 2: Participation (Students at Level 2 not only show at least minimal respect for others but also willingly play, accept challenges, practice motor skills, and train for fitness under the teacher’s supervision.
n Level 1: Respect (Students at Level 1 may not participate in daily activities or show much mastery or improvement, but they are able to control their behavior enough that they don’t interfere with the other student’s right to learn or the teacher’s right to teach. They do this without much prompting by the teacher and without constant supervision.
n Level Zero: Irresponsibility ( Students who operate at Level Zero make excuses, blame others for their behavior, and deny personal responsibility for what they do or fail to do.
FITNESS GRAM –
The Fitness Gram is the assessment tool used to measure the components of physical fitness. We can look at certain areas on the Fitness Gram Report that will indicate low and/or high levels of overall fitness. For example, if we find that students are not in their HFZ for the assessment of flexibility, the teacher would have the student engage in activities that would enhance their range of motion. This data can support current and future curricular decisions A pre-assessment is conducted in the fall and a post-assessment in the spring. Results are mailed home in January and June.
