Volleying Unit Evaluation (Grading) System

Effort (50%) - Students will be evaluated with regards to performance

in all learning domains through demonstrating a maximum level of effort
in instructional activities, written work, and courteous behavior towards
others in class.
Knowledge (25%) - Students will be evaluated through the learning
they demonstrate of content presented within each lesson based on their
performance in oral/written assessments.

Skill (10%) - Students will be evaluated in their ability to make daily

improvements through skills practiced during each lesson in terms of
their performance in observations, peer feedback sheets, and video

Participation (15%) - Students will be evaluated in relation to whether

they come prepared to class in attire for physical activity so that their
full engagement in learning tasks can be achieved by showing respect
towards fellow classmates through performance on oral, tactile, and
written assessments.
Results of Assessments

Throughout my unit I used a multitude of assessments in all learning domains so that the
performance of each student as a whole could better be gauged. I found that this had profound
impact on my ability to fairly evaluate the progress in which students made throughout this five
week span. With that being said, all student differences were accounted for in my creation of
these grading tools.

In the psychomotor domain I used mostly teacher observation, but included both a criteria
sheet (peer rating scale) and videotaping through use of an iPad to assess students during unit. I
recognized that each of these means in evaluation showed that students were able to improve
their performance in the skills covered within them, especially in my own viewing of this
completion through utilization of corresponding rubric. The only instance with which my
students did not do as well as what I thought they were going to do was when their execution of
underhand serve was filmed by fellow classmate, where it was quite clear that most of them
struggled to adequately carry out this motion based on recordings. However, I would say that the
data gathered from students completion of criteria sheet was much more positive in regards to
each individual scoring their peers forearm pass achievement honestly, correctly, but most
importantly very highly. It is critical that in the future I make my written assessments more user-
friendly since students had a difficult time comprehending some of the vocabulary present on
this sheet.

The assessments in relation to the cognitive domain that I employed for evaluating my
students performance within unit consisted of turn and talk, informal questioning, exit slip,
visual analysis, and skill drawings. For the most part students demonstrated much knowledge
with respect to the content presented through these items with the exception of showing some
slight issues in reciting the setting skill cues on the exit slip. I thought that students carried out
turn and talk, informal questioning, and visual analysis pieces superbly, which was as predicted
in light of them being able to complete this task collectively. One outcome I was really proud of
my students with was their drawings that they made of the forearm pass, setting, and underhand
serve due to the complexity behind executing this exercise. This is why in the future it will be
vital that I continue to include more visual assignments within my written assessments rather
than attach too much wording to them that students have to read.

In reference to the various assessments within the affective domain that I applied during
this unit, altogether they comprise of a class share, Slap the Face wall exercise, thumbs
up/thumbs down survey, emotional temperature worksheet, and journal response. It was clear
that my students executed the class share, thumbs up/thumbs down survey, and emotional
temperature evaluations real seriously considering the responses that were garnered by these
individuals in them communicated how they truly felt about the tone of classroom environment. I
was happily surprised with the students performance in writing a journal response highlighting
their disdain towards their peers volleyball sportsmanship in class since it was evident that they
were voicing their truthful opinion to such matters, which was a quality that surely was not
anticipated. In the Slap the Face wall exercise my students were unfortunately unable to
exhibit the capability in carrying out this duty in a sufficient manner, as a result distorting the
evidence that should have been gained from it. From this point moving forward it is of the
outmost importance that I alter my written assessments in a way that students truly can express
their full emotions without being limited to offering their reactions on select qualities that make
up their well-being when in physical education.

Finally, these assessments were greatly beneficial towards providing me with necessary
input for how I needed to alter my instruction so students could experience success during the
course of this unit. It was by structuring these methods of evaluation in a fashion that my
students could easily accomplish is what helped to make this process much more advantageous
for all individuals involved. The influence that was had in students attainment of volleying
subject matter overviewed upon incorporating the focused classification instruments into my
lessons simply could not be replicated through the makings associated to any instructional
strategy implemented throughout this period.
