(Week of November 8, 2010) – We just sent out our Carol M. White PEP Grant E-zine to several thousand folks who are current subscribers (it’s free).  To sign-up, please see our website – Great Activities Publishing Company.

PEP Grant E-zine: To see a copy of this informative publication, please click HERE. With the naming of the “Race to the Top” states and the 2010 PEP Grant winners, more and more states and school districts are looking for practical ways to assess, grade, and monitor their students in physical education.

Questions? If you have any questions or thoughts about moving towards standards-based grading and assessment in your K-12 physical education programs, please feel free to contact us. We are currently working with numerous school districts across the county and would be happy to share our “success stories” as well as “lessons learned” with you!

Grading Rubric: It is suggested that the 12 Power Standards as found in the November issue of the PEP Grant Newsletter are graded on a 0-4 scale as seen below:

  • 4 – “Exceeds” – Performs at an outstanding level, far exceeding the required State Standard.
  • 3 – “Consistently” – Meets the required State Standard, performs on grade level.
  • 2 – “Sometimes” – Close to meeting the required State Standard, just below grade level.
  • 1 – “Seldom” – While progressing towards the State Standard, performance is sporadic, uneven or infrequent.
  • 0 – “Rarely” – Many/most key learnings are missing, does not always attempt/complete work, far below grade level.

Weighting Scale: It is suggested that the first 10 Power Standards have the following weight:

  • 4 – “Exceeds” = 10 points
  • 3 – “Consistently” (Meets Standard) = 9 points
  • 2 – “Sometimes” = 8 points
  • 1 – “Seldom” = 7 points
  • 0 – “Rarely” = 6 points

The last two Power Standards are weighted in this manner:

  • 4 – “Exceeds” = 5 points
  • 3 – “Consistently” (Meets Standard) = 4 points
  • 2 – “Sometimes” = 3 points
  • 1 – “Seldom” = 2 points
  • 0 – “Rarely” = 1 points

Typical Elementary School PE Grading Scales: Many elementary schools grade and assess physical education in the following manner:  4 = Outstanding [demonstrates 4’s on the majority (50% or more) of the 12 standards], 3 = Satisfactory (demonstrates 3’s on the majority of the 12 standards), 2 = Needs Improvement (demonstrates 2’s on the majority of the 12 standards), and 1 = Unsatisfactory (demonstrates 1’s on the majority of the 12 standards) scale.

Typical Middle and High School PE Grading Scales: Most middle and high schools typically use the following point scale for grades:

  • A = 93-110
  • B = 86-93
  • C = 78-85
  • D = 70 – 77
  • F = 69 and below
