Assessment Guide for Secondary School Physical Education Programs.
American Alliance for Health, Physical Education, and Recreation, Washington, DC. National Association for Sport and Physical Education.
The purpose of this assessment instrument is to provide a functional tool that allows for: (1) self-study and self-evaluation of the total secondary school physical education program; (2) identification of problem areas; and (3) eventual improvement of the secondary school physical education program. Criteria items are organized under four program areas--administration, instructional program, intramural program, and athletic program. All items are based upon professional association recommendations that presume that physical education departments with different philosophies will interpret and design programs according to different rationales. Since all answers or responses to criteria statements utilized in this instrument reflect the particular philosophy of the program being studied, a written statement of the department's philosophical orientation should be available. The required response to all criteria statements is "yes" or "no." A negative response indicates that additional self-study is needed in the specific area or may be justified with an acceptable rationale based on the philosophical orientation of the department. The instrument may be used to develop a written self-study, to demonstrate program quality to superiors, or to assess progress in program development. (MM)
