Responsibility levels
Irresponsibility-uncooperative, self control-cooperative non-participation, involvement-playing cooperatively, self-responsibility- independent participation, caring-helping others participate

Consistent results, Example: A test divided into even and odds give same results. Two test, that test the same material, give the same results, consistant results among testers in the same info.

Accurate. The degree to which a study accurately reflects or assesses the specific concepts that the researcher is attempting to measure. Example: A test measures what it is intended to measure.

Common Teaching Cues

Whole Method
Skill is first demonstrated and then practice as a whole, from start to finish. Best used for fast low-risk skills

Part Method
Parts of the skill are practiced in isolation which is useful for complicated and serial skills and is good for maintaining motivation and focusing on specific elements of the skill

Whole-Part Whole
Whole skilled is practiced and demonstrated before being broken down into the parts to practice the individual elements, then putting the whole skill back together. Ex. Swimming

Progressive part method
“chain method”. parts of a skill practiced individually, in order, before being linked together. High-risk skills for which safety and systematic skill must be taught before practiced together. Example: risk of student being injured is high.

Blood lactate
Extreme intensity of physical activity overtakes the circulatory systems ability to remove this from the muscle

National Association of Sport and Physical Education (NASPE)
Created standards and assessment guidelines for physical education

Reflective cycle
Knowledge base (Gap, to allow learning from other experiences and colleagues) situation reflect back on knowledge base, develop a reflective plan, implement plan, observed results, and continue the cycle until something works.

The development of action and coordination of one’s limbs, As well as the development of strength, posture control, balance and perceptual skills

3 Phases of Motor Learning For Learners High School Ages and Older
• Cognitive – Understanding the skill
• Associative – Connect to other skills or previous learning
• Autonomous – gives the performer opportunities to attend less to skill performance and more to other aspects to the task, such as ball placement or strategy.

Is a criterion-referenced health-related test of physical fitness, appropriate for use with young people with disabilities. The BPFT is customized to meet the needs of all students with varying abilities.

A behavior based logging activity that can help young people learn more about their physical activity habits. The assessment is a three-day recall of the child’s activities.

Least Restrictive Environment (LRE)
a part of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). IDEA says that children who receive special education should learn in the least restrictive environment. This means they should spend as much time as possible with peers who do not receive special education.

Body Mass Index (BMI)
a person’s weight in kilograms divided by the square of height in meters.

Healthy BMI’s are generally between 18.5 and 24.9. Below 18.5 is considered underweight. Between 25 to 29.9 is considered overweight. Above 30 is considered obese.

Three Main Functions of AAHPERD
1. support the professional growth of their members.
2. to educate the public about the purpose and the importance of the profession.
3. to represent their members in to political environment the creates policies directly affecting the profession.

Title IX of Education Amendments of 1972
The federal law prohibits discrimination based on gender in educational programs and in any entity that receives federal funds.

504 section
Requires that information be obtained from a variety of sources in the area of concern, that all data are documented and considered, and that decisions are made by a group of persons knowledge about the student evaluation data and placement options

A scoring tool that lists the criteria for level of performance expected on a skill.

Mosston and Ashworth’s Command Teaching Style
When the teacher makes all of the decisions. The purpose of this style is to learn to do the task accurately & within a short period of time, following all decisions made by the teacher. The essence: Immediate response to a stimulus. Performance is accurate & immediate.

Mosston and Ashworth’s Reciprocal Teaching Style
When students work in pairs with one student performing and the other student providing feedback based on criteria prepared by the teacher. The essence: Learners work in a partner relationship; receive immediate feedback; follow criteria for performance designed by the teacher; & develop feedback & socialization skills.

Mosston and Ashworth’s Practice Teaching Style
When students carry out a task that are prescribed by the teacher. This style offers the learner time to work individually & privately, and provides the teacher with time to offer the learner individual & private feedback. The essence: Time is provided for the learner to do a task individually & privately & time is available for the teacher to give feedback to all learners, individually & privately.

Mosston and Ashworth’s Learner-Initiated Teaching Style
When the learner plans his own progress, while the teacher is there to advise or support.

Evaluative Feedback
indicates the correct action to take by informing the performer exactly what he is doing incorrectly; NOT telling the performer what to do.

Portfolio Assessment
is used by the teacher to gauge the student’s current skill level; assessments that will indicate, through data, whether a student’s fitness is improving over time.

Baseline Assessments
assessments that are only given at the beginning of the school year.

Cumulative Assessments
assessments that are only given at the end of the school year.

Summative Assessments
1) is given at the end of a unit or a class to discover what the students have learned from the lessons.

2) to evaluate student learning at the end of an instructional unit by comparing it against some standard or benchmark.

Example: Final exams, statewide test, entrance exams (Sat, Act, Praxis)

Formative Assessments
1) is generally given to get a sense of students’ previous knowledge of a subject so the teacher can adjust the lessons to the level of the knowledge base of the class.

2) a range of formal and informal assessment procedures conducted by teachers during the learning process in order to modify teaching and learning activities to improve student attainment.

Example: Anecdotal records, Quizzes and essays, Diagnostic tests, Lab reports

Constructivist Theory
argues that people generate knowledge and meaning from interactions between their experiences and ideas.

Interdisciplinary Teaching
combines skills, knowledge, and conceptual understanding in two or more subjects or disciplines. Collaboration among teachers of different subjects is a primary advantage of _________________.

Sport-Education Model
1) a model that allows the teams to be evenly mixed.

2) a model that takes students through a series of skills, drills, and games for various sports throughout a school year.
