Formative assessment shall help to promote learning and develop competence in the subject. The pupils demonstrate and develop their competence in physical education in vg2 by training and learning in play and a variety of movement activities, by exercising alone, by helping others learn and by having a sustainable approach to nature wandering and an independent practice of outdoor life.
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. The efforts made by the pupils are part of the competence in physical education. Making an effort in physical education means that the pupil endeavours to solve subject-related challenges to the best of his/her ability without giving up, demonstrates independence, challenges one’s own physical capacity and cooperates 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 with others, and when they assess their own work in physical education. The teacher and pupils shall engage in dialogue 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 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, their own exercising, and their participation and interaction in outdoor activities and outdoor life.
