Physical Educators track and assess goals for their students, programs, and national standards to know if the program is effective. Goal Attainment Scaling (GAS) has been utilized in various settings throughout the years and offers a unique approach for assessment and program evaluation. GAS provides an alternative tool for assessing skills in addition to rubrics or grading scales that is traditionally used in the physical education setting. Therefore, the purpose of this article is to provide a background of the GAS, explain various ways to utilize a GAS, and provide examples for physical education classroom use.
