Self Evaluation in Physical Education: Developing the process (book plus 2 DVDs)
Essential for everyone involved in evaluating physical education in schools
A step-by-step approach through the essentials of self-evaluation in Physical Education
Self-evaluation in Physical Education: Developing the process is an essential resource if you are involved in evaluating physical education in schools.
The resource adopts a detailed step-by-step approach through the essential stages of self-evaluation in physical education and builds on the practice outlined in A Guide to Self-review in Physical Education.
Based on the Ofsted framework, it:
- uses a wide range of case studies from primary, special and secondary schools, which give useful guidance on good practice
- includes a DVD of four filmed PE lessons complementing the resource's content and case studies
- gives guidance on specific tasks to be undertaken over a period of time, so you can make clear, qualitative judgements based on standards and levels of achievement in PE.
The content and the resulting activities are closely linked to government criteria for high-quality physical education.
Self-evaluation in Physical Education: Developing the process can be used as a stand-alone CPD resource for schools, higher education institutions and LEAs or can be used in conjunction with a national CPD course that further develops self-evaluation skills, where opportunities will be available for accreditation.

"Self-Evaluation in Physical Education: Developing the Process is an essential resource for all personnel who are involved in the process of evaluating the standards and quality of physical education in schools. It is a key tool for those involved in the leadership and management of physical education ... This is the definitive resource for self evaluation in physical education. I urge all colleagues involved in the teaching of physical education to use it."
