Track PE students’ progress with these easy-to-use assessments and tests

Whether on the pitch, in the pool or back in the classroom, assessments are a tool that provides teachers with a clearer understanding of how students are progressing. We’ve selected a range of practical resources and theoretical end-of-topic tests that are ideal for tracking progress and outlining the areas that can be improved upon in future lessons.

Practical assessments

Monitor students’ progress in the swimming pool with these detailed assessment worksheets, which break down the key components and considerations of each stroke. Or, why not roll out a series of quick assessments looking at the technique of cartwheels and vaulting, to name a few, by using these illustrated gymnastics teaching cards?

From jumping, twists and landings to correctly warming up and cooling down, mark your learners' progress in trampolining lessons with this assessment level sheet, before tracking their skills across a number of popular sports with the help of this handy grid.

Swimming assessment cards

Can be a useful peer assessment tool when laminated and pupils are taught how to use it. Took me a while to produce so just have a little read through to check its ready for printing. Is a good start but you could easily make some improvements to fit your needs. I have started to make some for other sports and i will try and get them up soon.

Assessment levels for trampolining in PE

I have written these assessment levels for trampolining at the start of 2014/15 to standardise my assessments over KS 3 & 4. I wrote them to cover as many criteria as is possible for the new curriculum and the levels can always be changed to suit whatever assessment system you choose to use.

End-of-topic tests

Why not use a written assessment to check how much your GCSE classes have absorbed during a unit of work? Challenge your students with these five end-of-unit tests, including answer sheets, or try these longer end-of-topic examination questions that will push learners to explain in detail how much they have understood.

Alternatively, quiz your BTEC classes on how fitness tests work with this assessment and mark scheme, which follow on from a comprehensive workbook that is also included. Further test the extent of your learner’s knowledge with this key word challenge, that can be used repeatedly throughout the year.
