Scholarship Physical Education Ability to critically evaluate to show breadth of knowledge & depth of understanding Comprehensive knowledge of Bio physical principles and socio-cultural factors Practical Application Detailed examples of own experiences in, through & about movement (evidence).
UNDERSTANDING THE KEY TERMS Critical Evaluation is the process of making informed and valid judgements or conclusions supported by comprehensive knowledge and evidence. Throughout the process we challenge assumptions and taken for granted points of view through reflecting and examining pros and cons, bias and different perspectives Biophysical knowledge (skill learning; functional anatomy; biomechanics; principals and methods of training etc) Socio cultural knowledge (interpersonal skills – self, others, society; sociological issues (obesity, body image); lifestyle; SPEECH). Examples drawn from your own experience in and throughout movement. Examples drawn from your own readings and research – quotes from a range of sources
Examiners Report Who got Outstanding Schol? ability to critically evaluate by providing a range of perspectives with relevant research and/or own experience ability to provide evidence of wider reading/research/personal experiences Wrote fluently with a high level of sophistication Developed a logical and coherent essay that concluded with a justified position Challenged assumptions clearly
Examiners Report Who got Schol but not Outstanding? Critically evaluated some questions Considered a range of perspectives and supported these with research and/or effective use of their own experiences Planned their answers in relation to the question and where applicable answered both parts of the question Provided a logical essay that flowed ie one paragraph progressed into another rather than being a series of disjointed statements
Examiners Report Why people did not get scholarship? Provided subject knowledge but very little evidence of critical evaluation Discussed rather than evaluated Used prepared answers and attempted to make then fit the question Answered only part of the question and /or less than 3 questions. Made assumptions throughout the essay Provided information or irrelevant subject knowledge to the question Retold stories of experiences without critically evalauting or using it to support a point made Provided a series of paragraphs or points that did not connect into a logical essay
The Scholarship Examination The 2012 Physical Education Scholarship exam will be on Tuesday 13 November 9.30am. Candidates will be required to answer three questions from a choice of four questions during the three hour examination.
Debates looking at both sides of the argument.

LEVEL 3 PE Excellence 90739 (3.1) - Apply comprehensive knowledge to produce a plan for a physical activity programme or experience. EN 5: Comprehensive knowledge could involve full understanding of a wide range of contributing issues or factors (hauora, biophysical, sociocultural), establishing priorities in balancing risk and challenge, justifying a plan from a range of alternatives, recognising if there is only one viable plan and showing an in-depth understanding of this.

LEVEL 3 PE Excellence 90740 (3.2 )- Critically evaluate, with supporting evidence, a physical activity programme and its influence on personal hauora/well-being. EN 6: For achievement with excellence, the critical evaluation must, with supporting evidence, examine, question, evaluate, and challenge taken for granted assumptions about issues and practices (p. 56 of H&PEiNZC); eg effectiveness of the programme, the process, the outcomes, and the related bio-physical principles and/or socio-cultural factors; before drawing conclusions about the effectiveness of their own physical activity programme and its influence on personal hauora/wellbeing.

LEVEL 3 PE Excellence 90743 (3.5) - Critically examine a current physical activity event or trend or issue and explain in detail its impact on New Zealand society. EN 5 Critically examine involves critical analysis, evaluation and reflection, all of which are based on the process of critical thinking – examining, questioning, evaluating and challenging taken-for- granted assumptions about issues and practices (p. 56 of H&PEiNZC), eg relevant socio-cultural factors and/or biophysical principles and their relationship to the event/trend/issue are considered in depth.

LEVEL 3 PE Excellence 90744 (3.6) –- Collect evidence of, and critically analyse factors that influence, participation in physical activity in the community. Critically evaluate the action taken to promote physical activity in the community. EN 5: Critically means with personal, considered opinions that examine the evidence. EN 11:Critically evaluate is the ability to make a valid judgement based on personal experience, readings, and gathered information clearly supported by evidence gained through the process of critical thinking – examining, questioning, evaluating and challenging taken-for-granted assumptions about issues and practices (p. 56 of H&PEiNZC). It requires a synthesis of information and extrapolation to consider possible solutions or outcomes.

Lets get critical & creative… Issues/ Bias & suggestions ISSUES Examines any bias that may exist. Challenges validity of figures, backed up with quotes. CHALLENGE ASSUMPTIONS: Are there any blanket terms used in the paragraph or question? Start by defining these terms and challenging there use in the statement.

SUGGESTIONS What are some initiatives, new ideas, alternatives, you or others have about helping this issue move forward or be improved.
CONCLUSION Begin… I am now going to conclude by reflecting on the major points I have discussed. …. Reach a valid judgment…. In my opinion after examining a range of points I…. If data is used in the question, use this data to back up your answer.
Finally….For all points raised use S.E.DE.C Make sure you are not just listing facts or ideas, that you link your ideas, data, interpretations into a coherent paragraph! (S) make a valid statement, or say in my opinion… (E) Explain what you mean by this statement (how and why). (DE) Give a detailed example backed up with evidence. (C) Conclude how this evidence relates to your statement. Use quotes, dont just regurgitate them. If using a direct quote follow with I would choose to take this quote literally…. Make sure you put course work knowledge into your answers where necessary. It is important that you are familiar with what you did this year!
