Using Plickers as an Assessment Tool in Health and Physical Education Settings
Chng, Lena; Gurvitch, Rachel
Journal of Physical Education, Recreation & Dance, v89 n2 p19-25 2018
Written tests are one of the most common assessment tools classroom teachers use today. Despite its popularity, administering written tests or surveys, especially in health and physical education settings, is time consuming. In addition to the time taken to type and print out the tests or surveys, health and physical education teachers must grade them before they can get a full picture of how well students are meeting their learning outcomes. The challenge is to help teachers find an easier, cost-effective, and time-effective way to assess their students' performance during an instructional unit, and toward the end of the unit. Therefore, the purpose of this article is to introduce the use of Plickers, a formative and/or summative assessment tool that can help in assessing the cognitive and affective domains performance of students in health and physical education settings.
