Developing Movement—Skills and Transitions

Developing Movement—Skills and Transitions

Students will demonstrate movement skills with accuracy while performing in combination and with transition to other movement.

This item has not yet been field-tested.


This is an analytic rubric. The column on the left shows the dimension that is being measured in the student’s performance. The levels across the top row indicate the performance level in the dimensions. Occasionally all dimensions and performance levels are exemplified by multiple students in a single recording.

TEACHER SCORING RUBRIC

  • Dimension
  • Accuracy of Technical Skill and Concept

  • Alignment: Body Placement in Space and Moving Through Space

  • Weight-Shift

  • Transitions

  • 1
  • 2
  • 3
  • 4
  • Skills are not performed correctly and safely. Under-standing of appropriate concepts, initiation, and movement awareness is presented.

    N/A at this time.
  • Few skills are performed correctly and safely. A limited understanding of appropriate concepts, initiation, and movement awareness is presented.

    N/A at this time.
  • Some aspects of skills are performed correctly and safely. Some understanding of appropriate concepts, initiation, and movement awareness is presented.

    N/A at this time.
  • Skills are performed correctly and safely. The understanding of appropriate concepts, initiation and movement awareness is presented.

    N/A at this time.
  • Unable to maintain proper aspects of alignment and body placement in space or while moving through space.

    N/A at this time.
  • Not always able to maintain proper aspects of alignment and body placement in space while moving through space.

    N/A at this time.
  • Most often able to maintain proper aspects of alignment and body placement not only in space but also while moving through space.

    N/A at this time.
  • Able to maintain proper aspects of alignment and body placement not only in space but also while moving through space.

    N/A at this time.
  • Unable to seamlessly transfer weight with efficiency, moving side to side and back to center throughout the entire phrase. Requires more strength and effort.

    N/A at this time.
  • Rarely able to seamlessly transfer weight with efficiency, moving side to side and back to center throughout the entire phrase. Requires more strength and effort.

    N/A at this time.
  • Sometimes able to transfer weight with efficiency, moving side to side and back to center. Requires and shows effort.

    N/A at this time.
  • Able to transfer weight with efficiency, moving side to side and back to center with seamless effort.

    N/A at this time.
  • Smooth and efficient transitions are not presented between movements. Barely any transitions from one position to another are done with correct alignment, and body mechanics.

    N/A at this time.
  • Smooth and efficient transitions are not presented between movements. Barely any transitions from one position to another are done with correct alignment, and body mechanics.

    N/A at this time.
  • Transitions between movements are smooth and efficient. Transitions from one position to another are mostly done with correct alignment and body mechanics.

    N/A at this time.
  • Transitions between movements are smooth and efficient. Transitions from one position to another are done with correct alignment and body mechanics.
