Hinkley High School Health & Physical Education Grading

On a daily basis students in Health & Physical Education are expected to be active participants in class, both physically and mentally. Students are graded using a variety of tools to assess their learning and progression towards proficiency. In addition to formative and summative assessments, basic rubrics have been developed as a guideline to explain what a student at each level looks like, regardless of the course they are enrolled in.






In addition to the basic rubrics above, more specific rubrics used to understand expectations and "look-fors" for each Physical Education course can be found under each teacher's link.
