NES Phys Ed: Organizing & Evaluating Phys Ed Programs Objectives
This chapter helps you to study for questions about developing, implementing and evaluating PE programs in the Physical Education Program content area of the NES Phys Ed exam. This test area accounts for about 25% of the total score. You'll be asked about standards and principles of effective PE instruction, appropriateness and safety of lesson plans and activities, modifying instruction for diverse learners and assessment methods used in PE programs.
The full NES Phys Ed exam consists of 150 multiple-choice questions on growth and development, movement, fitness and PE programs. The test lasts three hours and is taken electronically at a designated testing site. Passing the exam is a certification requirement for phys ed teachers in some states.
1. Designing PE Programs Based on National & State Standards
This lesson will teach you, by example, how to design effective physical education programs based on a set of standards. It will guide you through the process of backwards planning and evaluating the standards to create a scope and sequence, or the depth and order of the content. Finally, it will support you in creating lessons to meet each of those substandards.
2. Analyzing Physical Education Lesson Plans
Teachers need to keep several aspects in mind when designing lessons, like skill level and purpose. This lesson describes necessary components of physical education lesson plans and details what aspects to include.
3. Accommodating Diverse Students in Physical Education Class
You're going to learn how methods of instruction, activities, rules, and equipment can be altered in order to accommodate students of different cultures, languages, and physical abilities.
4. Physical Education Assessments: Types & Uses
In this lesson we explore physical education assessments today and the common criteria that educators use. In addition, we discover the best way to approach using assessments with the student.
