A Practical Approach to Sex Fair Performance Evaluation in Secondary Physical Education.
McGonagle, Kenneth; Stevens, Ann
A method of sex-fair performance evaluation is presented which can be used in coeducational secondary school physical education classes. This method tallies specific skill areas associated with athletic activities, disregarding such concepts as student improvement, level of competition, participation, effort, and exact skill measurement. Performance assessment methods for six physical education areas--archery, badminton, gymnastics, softball, swimming, and volleyball--are shown. All students are evaluated with the same criteria for each activity. Skills are scored on a range from 0 to 3, and the total score is incorporated into the department grading system for the unit grade. Examples of the applicability of the evaluation method in four high schools are given, showing alternative criteria and point conversion approaches. Appended to the report are evaluation and grading statements from 3 high school departments of physical education and a list of 13 references. (Authors/FG)
