The first article of the PE Metrics series, "Developing Quality Physical Education through Student Assessments" (January/February 2009 "Strategies" issue) focused on the importance of assessing student learning in relation to NASPE's content standards (NASPE, 2004). The article emphasized that unless students are appropriately assessed, it is impossible to accurately determine what they have learned and achieved as a result of physical education class. The physical education assessments recently published in "PE Metrics: Assessing the National Standards, Standard 1: Elementary" (2008) provide valid and reliable tools to measure student learning and inform teacher instruction. This second article of the PE Metrics series focuses on explaining the formative and summative assessment processes and introducing different instructional considerations that teachers will need to contemplate in order to effectively implement the assessments.
