STANDARDIZED GRADING FORMULA
Physical EducationMr. Bach
All students will be assessed using a standardized policy in Physical Education. A rubric will be used to help with consistency in grading student achievement. The department will use the following point system:
Preparation = 25 pts
Participation/Cardio = 65 pts
Sportsmanship/Knowledge = 10 pts
100 total pts
NOTE: The maximum points that can be deducted for an unprepared is 6.
Students must dress for class. Appropriate dress for class includes sneakers, shorts/sweats, and t-shirt.
Student effort during all components of the class is imperative. This includes the dynamic warm-up, running, skills session, and Class activity.
Running will be included in participation.
The scale for running will be as follows:
0 = good/acceptable effort (no points deducted)
-1 = Very little/unacceptable effort
-2 = No effort
The maximum number of points that can be deducted for effort in cardio is -20 for a marking period. This is based on a student running a maximum of 20 times in a marking period.
Student understands how the game is played, scoring, rotation, etc. This will also include the students knowledge of how exercise and muscle groups. Sportsmanship represents student behavior in class. This can include use of unacceptable language, throwing of equipment, and disrupting a game/class.
UNPREPARED FOR CLASS
Students who are unprepared for class seven times in a marking period will earn a -42, which will be an “F”. Phone calls MUST go home when a student receives his/her 4th unprepared. A follow-up call must go home for the 6th & 7th unprepared on the day it takes place.
REMEMBER, even if a student does not do the running or accumulates 1- 2-3 etc. unprepared but gives an outstanding effort other days, there must be a chance for the student to earn some pts back. The system cannot be just punitive! Students who are unprepared may NOT participate in any class activity. The must sit on the side and remain with the class.
Examples of Grading:
1 Un. (-6)
2 Un. (-12)
3 Un. (-18)
3 Un. (-18)
100 – 6 =
100 – 21 =
100 – 33 =
100 – 44 =
100 – 25 =
94 = A
79 = C+
67 = D+
56 = F
75 = C
Participation points can come from lack of effort during dynamic warm-up, activity, or cardio run.
PARENT NOTES – notes written by parents excusing a student from physical education must be signed off by the school nurse; the student will be given a pass excusing him/her from the day’s activities. The student must get changed for class and report to their teacher where they will be allowed to sit out the activity. A student who does not change will receive an unprepared for the day. There will be a maximum of two parent notes accepted per marking period. The individual teacher will address special situations. Students will not have to change when a doctor’s note is presented for exclusion from class.
MEDICALLY EXCUSED FROM ACTIVITY – Please refer to the policy located on School Wires for alternative assignments.
