1 LIFE SKILLS: ASSESSMENT IN THE THREE STUDY AREAS PERSONAL AND SOCIAL WELL-BEING (PSW) PHYSICAL EDUCATION (PE) CREATIVE ARTS (CA)
2 PERSONAL AND SOCIAL WELL-BEING (PSW) : PROJECT Could be any piece of work in which knowledge, skills and values leads towards competence in specified content are demonstrated.It involves: collecting data, interpreting data and presenting findings into a written product.Collecting of data could be outside contact time.The nature of the project is determined by the content covered according to the national teaching plan.Progress of learners must be monitored towards completion.Assessment criteria should be discussed with the learners prior to the commencement of the project.
3 PSW: ASSIGNMENTThe assignment is a problem-solving exercise (CAPS, p.52)Clear guidelines should be given to learners.Nature and focus of the assignment is determined by the content covered according to the annual teaching plan.The teacher will provide learners with resources and information required to deliver the task. (CAPS, p.52)
4 PSW: CASE STUDYThe case study will enable the teacher to assess whether learners can apply knowledge, skills, and values to an unfamiliar contextIt is a detailed description of a specific situation or phenomenon (CAPS, p.52)The description can either be real or hypothetical.Use books, newspapers, magazines, video or radioThe teachers will provide learners with resources and information required to deliver the task (CAPS p.53)
5 PSW: DESIGN AND MAKE The production of an actual product. Learners will be required to design, make and write descriptive statements on the task to show and understanding of knowledge gained and the application of knowledge and skillsThe teacher will provide learners with the resources and information required to deliver this task.The assessment criteria has to be discussed with learners prior to the commencement of the task.
6 PSW: TESTTests will be administered at the end of the second term during the PSW period.Consist of a range of questions that will assess knowledge recall, understanding and application of knowledge.
7 Examinations will incorporate more than one type of question. PSW: EXAMINATIONSExaminations of at least 45 minutes for grades 4-5 at the end of the year.Examinations of at least 75 minutes for grade 6 at the end of the year.Examinations will incorporate more than one type of question.
8 ASSESSMENT IN PHYSICAL EDUCATION The Physical Education Tasks (PET) is evaluated across all four terms.Learners are expected to participate in Physical Education every week.Physical Education must be timetabled to take place in fixed periods, labeled Physical Education.The emphasis is on participation, enjoyment and enrichment.
9 ASSESSING PHYSICAL EDUCATION Assessment will take place through observation.Reporting will take place at the end of the term.The mark allocation for PET is 30% of the total mark of the subject.Subject advisors will moderate the PET during announced school visits by observing learners performing the actual assessment task. (CAPS, p54)
10 CRITERIA FOR ASSESSING IN PHYSICAL EDUCATION 1. Participation: Exposing learners to an understanding of the value of regular participation in physical activity.The focus is on enjoyment and building confidence.2. Movement performance: Each learner will be assessed at the level at which they are capable of performing.Movement performance must not encourage a sense of competition.
11 ASSESSMENT IN CREATIVE ARTS Learners engage in experiential learning, to develop creativity, expressiveness, communicating in different ways and enjoyment of the artsObservation and feedback from the teacher (brief, meaningful, constructive comments appearing in each learner’s report) CAPS: 56-57
12 FORMAL ASSESSMENT REQUIREMENTS The Creative Arts Task (CAT): twice a year for each stream (Visual and Performing Arts) in Grades 4, 5,6By mid-year, a CAT for each of Visual and Performing Arts should have been administered, and again by the end of the yearOne CAT assessment should be held in each term
13 CA: FORMAL ASSESSMENT TASKS Participation in PA and VA assessed informally through class observationAbility for only one stream formally assessed per termWhen assessing Performing Arts, choose a CAT that comprises of at least TWO of the three art forms.
15 MARK ALLOCATIONThe two Visual Arts CATs add up to a total of 80 marks and the two Performing Arts CATs will add up to a total of 80 marks per yearThe marks obtained give a total mark out of 160 for the CAT at the end of each grade.The mark allocation for the CAT is 40% of the total mark out of 400 for Life Skills, that is, 160 marks.
16 CREATIVE ARTS ASSESSMENT TASKS Visual Arts CATs can take the form of any assessment tasks from the term, which takes a minimum of 3 periods to completePerforming Arts CATs can be taken from any of the tasks in Topics 2 or 3 for the term, which combine use of at least TWO of three art formsNo written exams in CA
