Formative assessment shall help to promote learning and develop competence in the subject. The pupils demonstrate and develop their competence in physical education in Years 8, 9 and 10 by exercising and using knowledge and skills in increasingly more complex movement situations, using their own skills and knowledge to help others progress in the subject, and acknowledging differences between themselves and others in movement activities. The pupils also demonstrate their competence by taking part in outdoor life in different seasons, including camping out, and by reflecting on what experiences in nature mean for oneself and others.
In physical education, interaction with others, practising and participating in different movement activities and nature wandering are essential aspects of the competence in the subject. Effort in physical education means that the pupil endeavours to solve subject-related challenges to the best of one’s ability without giving up, challenges one’s own physical capacity and collaborates with others.
The teacher shall facilitate for pupil participation and stimulate the desire to learn through a variety of movement activities the pupils perform alone or together with others, and when they assess their own work in physical education. The teacher and pupils shall engage in dialogue with the pupils about their development in physical education. The pupils shall have the opportunity to experiment in the subject. With the competence the pupils have demonstrated as the starting point, they shall have the opportunity to express what they believe they have achieved, and reflect on their own development in the subject. The teacher shall provide guidance on further learning and adapt the teaching to enable the pupils to use the guidance provided to develop their competence in movement activities, in participating and practising with others, in lifesaving, and in outdoor activities and outdoor life.
