Affective Test for Frisbee Golf Chris Rhodes and Chad WardPurpose: To assess the students on team building elementssuch as positive reinforcement/feedback, positive interactionbetween students before and after the activity and followingthe rules of the game set by the teacher.Student Instructions: We are going to be playing three holes ofFrisbee Golf today, so I am going to need everyone to focus notonly on their own game but also the others that you will beplaying with. We also want to try to apply our four criteria toour gameplay. The grading criteria is as follows: not talkingduring a student’s shot, encouraging a player before or after ashot, helping spot the location of someone’s shot and finallyaiding a student’s game in regards to discs, distance, or bodyposition. Each hole will be a different distance than the next forscoring. Hole 1 will be a Par 3 hole with a distance of 40 yards.Hole 2 will be a Par 4 hole with a distance of 50 yards. Hole 3will be a Par 5 hole with a distance of 65 yards. Each player will“tee off” off of the tee box and then proceed through the hole.Teacher Instructions: You will evaluate the students on theirnon-skill participation within the activity. The emphasis will beput on the students attitudes and actions towards others andhelping with the actual game and the strategies thataccompany it.
Equipment: 3 Baskets, 15-20 Frisbees, 3 Tee Boxes (15 Cones)Scoring Procedure: We will have a checklist that will grade thestudent’s actions towards other players as well as the flow ofthe game. We will either check “Yes” or “No” for the studentsactions and thus come up with a final grade by using thechecklist.
Scoring Criteria/Grading:A: 14-11 points B: 10-7 points C: 6-3 points F: 3-0 points Action: Yes NoBeing silent when astudent is in play.(5 pts.)Encouraging aplayer before andafter their shot(2 pts.)Helping spot thelocation ofsomeone’s shot(2 pts.)Give beneficialinstructions to aplayer concerningbody position, discchange or distancebetween them andthe hole.(2pts.)Shake hands withother players aftera hole is completed.(3pts.)
Test Modifications:In order to make this affective assessment accessible to allstudents, we will have a modified test that will include modifiedtesting zones as well as different criteria that the student willbe tested on. For example, if a student that was limited to awheelchair was to take this test, we would have them use atwisting or rocking motion with their upper body (if possible).We would grade them on their shoulder and elbow motion. Wewill still grade them on their final placement of their chairinstead of their feet. Their chair may not continue rolling or tipforward during the action of their throw. The grading criteriafor release of Frisbee and final landing will be modified to adistance that is appropriate for them. The affective test criteriawill still be used with them even though they will needmodifications for the skills assessment of the activity.Tasks for Non-Testing Students:There will be a designated warm up area where the studentswho are not testing at a particular time may practice theirrocking motion and throw. The students may also giveencouragement to others who are in play and also help withspotting and judging distances towards the hole.
