Standard 5: Impact on Student Learning

Physical Education teacher candidates utilize assessments and reflection to foster student learning and inform instructional decisions.

During PED 434: Statistics and Assessments of P.E., Steph and her group had to create a presentation based on a series of pre and post tests of cognitive, affective, and psychomotor skills that her students were assessed by. The presentation included assessments, objectives, data, and goals that my group expected out of our students. Based on our results we saw how we could change the lesson next time to maximize our students potential.
