Artifact #1: EXS 197 Skill Proficiency Test

Date: Fall 2010

Reflection:  The EXS 197 Skill Proficiency Test was used to assess my proficiency in twelve psychomotor skills. The goal was to receive at least a three on each of the skills, which represents the ability to perform an adequate physical education classroom demonstration of the skill. This artifact meets Element 2.1 of Standard 2 because it shows I can demonstrate personal competence in motor skill performance for a variety of psychomotor skills as I received a four out of four in almost all of the skills performed. This artifact is important to my development as a physical education teacher because physical educators need to be competent in performing the various psychomotor skills. A physical educator cannot expect their students to perform skills with competence if they cannot perform them with competence themselves.
Element 2.2: Achieve and maintain a health-enhancing level of fitness throughout the program.

Artifact #2: PED 282 Cardiovascular & Flexibility
                  Fitness Plan
& Calendar Log

Date: Fall 2011

Reflection: My cardiovascular fitness and flexibility were assessed in PED 282 - Health-Related Physical Fitness using the PACER test, mile run, sit and reach, and zipper test. Using the assessment data, I created a fitness plan to enhance my cardiovascular fitness and flexibility. This artifact meets Element 2.2 of Standard 2 because the results of my fitness assessments and the accompanying fitness plan show that I maintain a healthy lifestyle and am able to create a fitness plan to maintain and further enhance my fitness. This artifact is important to my development as a physical education teacher because physical educators are role models to their kids and should represent what they want their kids to be.
