Artifact #1:
EDU 355 Field Experience
                  Curriculum Project: Benchmarks &
                  Assessments

Reflection: The EDU 355 - The Physical Education Curriculum: Planning & Practice Field Experience Curriculum Project: Benchmarks and Assessments were used to assess students in floor hockey based on their grade level benchmark across all three domains: psychomotor (shooting and control), affective (attitude and effort), and cognitive (cues). This artifact meets Element 5.1 of Standard 5 because it shows my ability to select and create appropriate assessments that measure student achievement of goals and objectives and grade level benchmarks. This artifact is important to my development as a physical education teacher because physical educators need to be able to select or create assessments that are appropriate for their students based on their goals and objectives for each class and grade level benchmarks.

Element 5.3: Utilize the reflective cycle to implement change in teacher performance, student learning, and instructional goals and decisions.

Artifact #2: PED 434 Work Sample Presentation

Reflection: The PED 434 - Statistics and Assessment in Physical Education Work Sample Presentation was used to create a unit curriculum with pre- and post-assessments across all three domains and then reflect upon the curriculum and assessments to implement change in teacher performance, student learning, and instructional goals and decisions for the unit curriculum in the future. This artifact meets Element 5.3 of Standard 5 because it shows my ability to reflect upon a unit curriculum and assessments to improve for the future, not only the results of assessments but their trustworthiness as well, e.g., authenticity, objectivity, practicality, reliability, and validity. This artifact is important to my development as a physical education teacher because physical educators need to constantly reflect upon their lessons, unit curricula, and assessments and implement change in them to provide their students with the best possible experience and environment to learn in. The perfect quote to express this notion is by ***a good teacher teaches once, a bad teacher teaches every year quote??***
