Assessment for Differentiation
Introduction to Unit
Pre-Assessment (Skill Progression)
12 Students who could play the game but needed more practice to develop their technique and understanding.
Students will be paired off depending on how far they went on the skill progression. They will then practice the specific skill with each other.
Students will answer a questionnaire about basic table tennis rules, strokes and concepts so as to better understand the game.
After practicing the skills they will then create a tournament including all twelve of them. This will provide vital practice in a game situation.
Students will then self assess their performance and what could have been improved upon in their overall game.
5 Students who struggled with the skills involved for a variety of reasons
If they have been assessed to have special needs, their IEP needs to be implemented.
For ELL's, every instruction will have a visual demonstration.
Incorporate hand-eye coordination exercises
Research and watch videos of the individual techniques while trying to replicate them
Allow them to use 'pickle ball' racquets. These are larger then table tennis paddles but the game uses the same core skills. The students can practice the different strokes and concepts with the bigger racquet.
5 Students who were very capable using short-handed implements for racquet sports.
Students will watch videos of high level table tennis players and analyse the strokes, techniques and concepts being shown. This will correlate with the net and racquet learning standards.
They will then play against each other in a non-competitive format so as to better assess flaws in their game.
These students will also act as umpires for the tournament that their peers are playing.
They will be expected to provide advice and adjudicate fairly.
