Description of Idea
Prior to assessment, students are grouped into teams to learn and play the game of soccer. Soccer skills and concepts are taught daily throughout the unit. The teacher creates a list of questions based on the concepts and skills learned in class. Students are given a list of the questions and prompted to seek assistance from their teammates and teacher prior to the test date. Teacher can randomly check for student understanding prior to test by asking similar questions. On test day, one student will be randomly chosen to represent each team. Each student is asked a question about the game of soccer and is allowed assistance from their team with the understanding that their team score will be lowered if they need assistance.
