Dodgeball Level Assessment Matrix Posted by Andrew Motch / July 23, 2012 / 13 Comments An assessment matrix to best fit pupils into the attainment target for the sport of Dodgeball at KS3/4 Attachments Dodgeball-Level-Matrix (83 KB) Please share this via:TwitterFacebookLinkedInGoogle February 22, 2015 Krista Winn Do you really teach this or did you post this as sarcasm? I didn’t think anyone actually teaches dodgeball, let alone assess it. The matrix is put together well. I would just hope that this human target game isn’t really included in a quality PE program. Please tell me this was created as a joke:) February 26, 2015 Andrew Motch Hi Krista, where abouts do you teach PE? That’s a very naive and narrow minded view you’ve got of Physical Education. We’ve spent years creating resources to get Dodgeball into schools. Dodgeball is the most inclusive and adaptable sport out there and there are so many successes coming out of it. I’ve been developing and teaching the sport since 2007 in many different capacities and to dismiss it as a joke is rude. September 7, 2015 James Gostomski Hello. I agree with the sentiments that Krista has shared. There is a reason why Dodgeball is in the Wall of Shame for activities for the U.S. national Physical Education Association now SHAPE America. The narrow minded and naive comment from Andrew is baseless since Krista Is a former National Teacher of the Year and has been advocating for quality physical education. Andrew who are you to comment like that ? Never heard of you. Shape America also has a position statement why Dodgeball is an inappropriate activity. For the veteran teachers that have had to deal with this for the past 20 years or more it is incredulous that we have have a discussion on this as we have seen it all. In the U.S. Dodgeball has been banned in many states as well as lawsuits against Physical Educators have made folks realize that this is a dangerous and non inclusive activity. There are many more activities that are beneficial for students. Unbelievable that this is a topic in the year 2015. July 10, 2014 James O'Sullivan If you have any examples of schemes of work, I would be interested in looking at them please. July 29, 2014 Andrew Motch Hi James If you go on the TES website and search Dodgeball you’ll find everything on there. March 20, 2013 Michael Cummings This is a great assessment. I have been tinkering with an idea on a throwing assessment. Please look for it and give me some feed back. I will post it after spring break. April 1st. Thanks March 20, 2013 Andrew Motch I designed this matrix with a bit of humour. The dodging and throwing exceptional performance criteria is pupil friendly, so thought it would be great on a wall in a PE corridor. We also put a GCSE specification for the sport together and I’ve been teaching and assessing for the last few years. I’d be really interested in seeing and potentially using your version. We’ve just come up with a really comprehensive one for our talent ID and player profiling for the England squad, which also includes a psychological pro forma. Thanks Michael I look forward to your response. November 15, 2012 Chris Collins Andrew Those lesson plans would be great… Can you upload them please? August 6, 2012 Kevin Welsh Andrew, did you create this based on the NC framework? Do you actually teach this as an activity at KS3 and KS4? August 6, 2012 Andrew Motch Hi Kevin, I’ve been teaching Dodgeball at both KS3 and 4 for the last 4 years. I designed the level matrix based on the attainment target of the NC for PE.
