Purpose of Event: To assess a student's ability in various manipulative skills.
Suggested Grade Level: 3-5
Materials Needed: Manipulative Skills Assessment Sheet (Excel File)
Description of Idea
The assessment includes five different skills (throwing, catching, kicking, dribbling, and volleying), with three different criteria listed for each skill. If the student completes a certain component of the skill, the teacher checks the box under each criteria that the student successfully performs. Once completed, the teacher adds up the number of checks to gather a total score for each student. To do this you could set up stations and you could be at one station doing the assessment.
A scoring rubric is listed as well. After you get the scores adjust your teaching to meet the students needs.
This is an Excel file so you can change any of skills or rubric criteria.
