Dynamics Using Qualities of Energy

Dynamics Using Qualities of Energy

Students will observe, identify, explore, create, and perform movements that demonstrate the use of dynamics and the release of energy in the body. This assessment can be used in grades 4 and 5. If there are time constraints, Part 3 can be omitted.

This item has not been field-tested by Michigan teachers.


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.
