Through this presentation I learned how to use assessments to gather information and apply the data gathered as a way to show student progress. By showing data with pre and post assessments you are able to show where students started and then the results. Analyzing data and presenting it in a clear organized manner can help you show others who don’t support Physical Education, that there are benefits.

We conducted a pre and post affective assessments to measure things such as confidence levels, enjoyment levels and how likely people were to pursue golf outside of class. The information we gathered, resulted in an increase in all three categories. The main goal of the golfing lesson was to expose students to a lifelong activity and to increase the participation outside of a school setting, and our goal was effectively met.
