Question

We are currently creating a standards-based report card for our
elementary building. I attended your presentation last May in Des
Moines and have shared the 15 fixes with the staff. My question
concerns reporting standards in PE. National PE standards refer to
"personal and social behavior that respects self and others".
Another standard states " recognizes the value of physical
activity for health, enjoyment, challenge, self-expression and/or
social interaction". How can we report on these national
standards and still separate out the academics from the behaviors
when PE is not really an academic area, but we need to report this
area to parents? There are two National PE standards that are
skilled-based, so should we just stick with those? Thanks for
your help!

says:

Whatever is a standard is legitimately part of the determination of a grade proportional
to it's significance as part of the standards for the subject/course. I think it is
important that you define clearly the what and the how well of those standards so that
they are not just things that we generally think are a good idea like "participation,"
"effort" and uniform.

Thank you for your reply, it was very helpful as we seek to separate performance from
behaviors.
