One station will allow teacher to assess students on throwing at stationary targets. 4-5 different targets will be used at the assessment station and the students will throw at each target 2-3 times, giving the teacher time to assess each student.
Write student’s name in first column, then put a check mark in column of corresponding level using the cues for throwing. View rubric (PDF)
Side facing target – the side opposite your throwing hand is facing the target
Step with opposite foot – Step towards your target with your foot opposite your throwing hand
