Formatted Abstract/Summary
Assessment has widely been acknowledged as a central element of institutional
education, shaping curriculum and pedagogy in powerful ways and
representing a critical reference point in political, professional and public
debates about educational achievement and policy directions. Within physical
education there remains significant debate regarding the subject knowledge,
skills and understandings that should be assessed and in what ways and at
what points in students' education this should occur.
      Divided into three parts, Assessment in Physical Education makes an important
contribution to our understanding of the sociocultural issues associated
with assessment in physical education, both in terms of its systemic development
and at the level of pedagogic relations between physical education teachers and
their students. It provides readers with an insightful critique and theoretically
informed ideas for rethinking assessment policies and practices iu physical
      This book will be of interest to advanced students and researchers in
physical education and youth sport studies, as well as those involved in initial
teacher education and teacher professional development.
