Physical Education: Elementary Skills Check Student Instructions: a. Print off the skills check document at the beginning of each unit. b. An adult will tell the student what skills need to be done. Adult Instructions: Skill evaluation can be done in two ways. Choose which method works best for you. 1. Take a video of your student performing the specified skills. Upload the video or send to the teacher for review. 2. Rate your student’s performance of the specified skills. a. Watch the instruction videos for each skill found in the course. b. Print off the Grading Rubric for the appropriate Skills Check to use when evaluating their performance. c. Watch your student perform each skill. d. Using the rubric as your guide, rate his/her proficiency level based on their demonstration of each skill. e. Complete the appropriate Skills Check Worksheet and upload or send to teacher. At this age students are graded more on participation than competency level. The goal is for students to reach the ‘Proficient’ level on most skills.
