MyPEScore from Tandalay Curriculum is a revolutionary assessment tool that makes grading physical education simple, while providing a standards-based, easy to administer method for evaluating student progress. Each unit includes assessment criteria for four areas of evaluation on the field - all measured with an easy-to-use 5-point rubric system. For each unit, standards are included for each of the following areas:

Sample Assessment

     Teachers enter student information,enter scores based on student performance during the unit, have grades and reports calculated and printed, then share the information with parents and administrators with the click of a mouse! Scores for students are averaged - 20% skill; 20% cognitive; 20% personal responsibility; 20% social (respects, appreciates, enjoys); 20% understanding fitness principles.

     Rubric: 5 points = Advanced; 4 points = Mastery; 3 points = Proficient; 2 points = Progressing; 1 point = Practice Encouraged; 0 points = no attempt was made; blank = student absence.

          Grade Level: Student achievement goals are automatically calculated by grade level. Tandalay’s and NASPE’s standards are based on grade levels K-2; 3-5; and 6-8. The goal for kindergarteners, third graders, and sixth graders is to achieve a score of "Progressing." Although the printout will show the number (2, 3, or 4), the overall score - or percentage - for that score will be reflected as 100% - goal achieved! The goal for first graders, fourth graders, and seventh graders is to achieve a score of "Proficient." The goal for second, fifth, and eigth graders is to achieve a score of "Mastery." A score of “Advanced” will reflect the 100%, while providing the appropriate feedback for the student and parents regarding the student’s outstanding achievement.

          Comprehensive, yet flexible.We have focus standards included in each Tandalay Unit of Instruction. MyPEScore can be used with the Unit Standards as presented or you can enter and evaluate according to your own standards. Simply enter your assessment criteria and the software takes care of the rest! Finally – a quick solution for grading physical education that reflects the whole player!  No more reliance on “dressing out” or vague perceptions of “participation.” Give credibility to your program, and to the importance of fitness, health, and the Joy of PLAY!

     Have fun!!! Who knew it could be so SIMPLE and REWARDING to teach PE to the standards?
