The National Association of Sport and Physical Education (NASPE) is committed to providing teachers with the support and guiding principles for implementing valid assessments. Its goal is for physical educators to utilize PE Metrics to measure student learning based on the national standards. The first PE Metrics text provides teachers with elementary assessments for Standard 1: "Demonstrates competency in motor skills and movement patterns needed to perform a variety of physical activities." Consistent with the national standards, the assessments were written to determine what students should know and be able to do at the end of Kindergarten, Grade 2, and Grade 5. A future PE Metrics publication for Standard 1 will provide valid and reliable assessments for determining achievement at the end of Grade 8 and high school. In addition, a separate publication will address Standards 2-6 at all grade levels.
