Description of Idea

This assessment will help the teacher assess students personal and social behavior during a game play unit. Make sure to go over the rubric sheet with the students so they understand what you are expecting in terms of their behavior.

The rubric and scoring sheet list many of the components of a Responsible Student Behavior that are mentioned on the SHAPE America Standards details and on the SOL's in Virginia for grades 6-10. The rubric explains each behavior and states the details for each category and level. During game play, use the scoring sheet to record only the number of lapses in good behavior in the first 4 categories. In addition, you can record exemplary helping and leadership behavior while students are playing a game, lead-up game, or doing drills. This can be done on paper if you prefer or it can be uploaded and completed on a computer. (if you have Wellnet, other learning management systems, an Assessment App or just MS Excel.)

Teaching Suggestions:

You can mark entries on all columns of the recording form in one session or you can choose one or two columns per session. Adjust as they pertain to your state standards. The scoring sheet and rubric can be used as part of a unit, or can be used to assess changes in behavior throughout the semester.
