BWHS Physical Education
Our department is in a unique position where we must grade students not only on classroom performance and mastery (health and driver’s education), but also performance and mastery in the gymnasium/weight room setting (9th and 10th grade PE, advanced PE). Therefore, we have developed a set of common grading practices that all our teachers will be following for the 2019-2020 school year.
Gymnasium/Weight Room (Physical Education):
Students will be graded on a 20-point scale each day.
Motor Skill Development and Anatomical Basis of Movement will account for 15 of those points: Standards: 10.1, 10.2
The student will demonstrate skill attainment of lifetime activities during physical education.
The student will demonstrate appropriate and proper use of equipment in daily physical education activities.
The student will demonstrate movement activities in each plane of movement. (frontal, sagittal, transverse)
The student will design and implement a program for strength and conditioning
Social Development will account for 5 points: Standard: 10.4
The student will demonstrate appropriate behaviors in all physical activity settings and the social skills needed to be a contributing member of the classroom environment.
The student will demonstrate communication skills in physical activity settings.
The student will identify and avoid potentially dangerous situations in physical activity settings.
This grade will comprise 50% of each student’s quarter, semester and final grade.
This grade is calculated in a total point grading system.
Students are expected to make up all absences and non-dress days with a make-up activity. They need to see their instructor to receive a make-up activity.
Classroom (health and driver’s education):
Formative assessments will be sued in the classroom setting. They will only be checked for completion, not accuracy. The maximum value of formative assessment will be 10 points or less.
Summative assessments will count for most of the classroom grade. Summative assessments will range in value from 20 points to 100 points. These can include tests, quizzes, take-home and in-class projects. Rubrics will be provided for projects.
Late work is accepted up until the quarter ends.
Retakes are permitted for students who score below an 80%. The retake can raise the grade no higher than an 80%.
