  • Alternative Assessment InstrumentsRubrics:Primary trait: Assess very specific actionsHolistic: Assess a combination of actions that comprise a more complex actionQuestionnaires

  • Rubrics for Physical EducationSee, the official website for links to rubrics:

  • Questions to Ask When Developing RubricsAre these skills, performances, or knowledge worth taking time and resources to assess?Do the scoring rubrics appear valid?Does everyone clearly understand the goal?Are the scoring criteria clear?Are the rubrics reliable? Objective?How well does the assessment match the skills being assessed?(continued)

  • More Questions to Ask When Developing RubricsCan this assessment be put to practical use?How crucial is the concept of the item at the top level of the rubric to the mastery of knowledge, skill, or performance?How much time was spent on the concept or unit?What are the age and ability level of the students?What amount of exposure to the concept, skill, or performance have the students experienced?

  • Your ViewpointYou are developing a rubric for a youth soccer league. What items, skills, and knowledge do you include? What are the scoring criteria?You are developing a rubric for a water aerobics class attended primarily by senior citizens. What items, skills, and knowledge do you include? What are the scoring criteria?
