Physical Education


Very little research has been done on grading in physical education. Most of the work on the subject is composed of methods and suggestions which authors have developed through their own experience. Very little has been done to determine the needs of the instructor in the classroom situation and to adopt procedures to these needs. These needs arise from many different forces at work affecting the methods the instructor uses. Some of these forces are present procedures, the status and credit given to physical education in the individual schools and the present philosophy of the instructors and school administrators. This study shall attempt to find and examine them. The problem, then, is to study the methods used in grading boys’ physical education in the high school.
