In 2018 Vermont became the first state to include standardized testing in k-12 Physical Education. This is in connection with ESSA federal law that names Physical Education as a vital part of every child's k-12 education.
Vermont AOE is still working on the implementation. JES took part in the pilot program last year.
Here’s what we know:
I have been using the FitnessGram assessment tool for over a decade here at JES and while I do not grade on fitness levels the test gives me great information that is used to drive curriculum. An example would be, three years ago I added additional cardio and strength training elements into every second thru fourth grade class (see “superhero workouts” below), partly due to information gain from our fitness assessments. I was also able to report on improvements to upper body strength after the installation of our new playground.
Standardized testing in physical education, if used to benefit our students, is a positive step forward.
