HOW CAN MY CHILD EARN AN EFFORT GRADE ABOVE THE "AT STANDARD 3 SCORE?"
In my physical education class, to earn any grade above a 3, a student needs to show superior skills in sportsmanship, participation, goal setting, actively using the Baker 8 (at age appropriate level), and always being prepared.
Specifically, and in line with the Lake Washington District Standard the student receiving a 4 demonstrates an excellent level of EFFORT at all times.
WHY DID MY CHILD EARN AN EFFORT GRADE at LEVEL 2 or 2.5 "BELOW STANDARD" IN PE?
NO matter how FIT or how ATHLETIC, your child might be, if your child has consistent difficulty following PE expectations/procedures, demonstrating good sportsmanship, and struggles to participate fully and/or to his/her best abilities, then your child is likely earning a 2 or 2.5.
