Standards-Based Grading System:
HCPS Middle School Physical Education teachers will utilize a standards based grading system for all students. The grading system will utilize county-wide rubrics which contain criteria based on standards written in the HCPS middle school Physical Education curriculum guide and aligned with national and state standards. These performance standards are broken down into 5 skill themes which consist of fitness, group initiatives, integrated movement, striking, and throwing & catching. All grades will continue to be based on psychomotor (40% - motor performance), cognitive (30% - knowledge assessments), affective (20% - personal and social performance), and work habits (10% - engagement in learning & preparedness for learning).
