I got the idea for a student self-assessment exit check from @thepespecialist on Twitter (Ben Landers). I re-created his using Comic Life 3.5. In his words: "The goal of this self assessment is similar to Hellison’s Model for Teaching Personal and Social Responsibility. We want kids to take responsibility for what they say and do in our classes. The easiest way to check and make sure kids understand where they stand is to have them do a daily self assessment. It’s also a great tool for teachers to recognize when a student might have a lower self-perception than they should - this is a great opportunity for the teacher to have a conversation and encourage them. I displayed these posters near the exit door on the wall. As students leave the gym they grade themselves by touching the poster that corresponds with their performance in PE class that day. This allows me to make sure students know where they stand and are aware of their performance in my class - it’s quick easy and very motivating for students."
What Each Category Stands For:
WOW = You followed all the PE expectations, used good sportsmanship, gave 100% effort, plus you helped someone else do their best
GOOD JOB = You followed all the PE expectations, used good sportsmanship, and gave 100% effort in all activities
SO CLOSE - KEEP TRYING = You got a warning from the teacher, You did not do your best or didn’t use good sportsmanship
NEED MORE EFFORT = You had to go to time out and missed some of the class time
