Students will perform movement skills with accuracy in isolation from 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.

  • Skills are not performed correctly and safely. Understanding of appropriate concepts, initiation, and movement awareness is not evident.

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

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

    N/A at this time.
  • All skills are performed correctly and safely. Thorough understanding of appropriate concepts, initiation, and movement awareness is demonstrated.

    N/A at this time.
  • The student is not able to maintain proper aspects of alignment and body placement in space or while moving through space.

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

    N/A at this time.
  • The student is 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.
  • The student is consistently 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.
  • Smooth and efficient transitions are not presented between movements.

    N/A at this time.
  • Transitions between movements are somewhat smooth and efficient but need practice.

    N/A at this time.
  • Transitions between movements are mostly smooth and efficient.

    N/A at this time.
  • Transitions between movements are smooth and efficient.

    N/A at this time.
  • Musicality and understanding of rhythm awareness are not demonstrated throughout performance.

    N/A at this time.
  • Very little musicality and understanding of rhythm awareness are demonstrated throughout the performance.

    N/A at this time.
  • Some movement is performed demonstrating an ability to feel and present the rhythm and musicality of the phrase.

    N/A at this time.
  • Movement is performed demonstrating an ability to feel and present the rhythm and musicality of the phrase.

    N/A at this time.
  • There is little awareness of how the body and limbs can use the space around them. Performance does not demonstrate awareness of self and others in space while performing.

    N/A at this time.
  • Awareness of space is not always connected through the entire body and limbs. More awareness of self and others in space is needed throughout the performance.

    N/A at this time.
  • Awareness of space is most often developed through the body and limbs. Spatial awareness of self and others is usually evident in performance.

    N/A at this time.
  • Awareness of space is developed through the body and limbs. Spatial awareness of self and others is evident in performance.

    N/A at this time.
  • Ability to present movement that demonstrates use of texture, attack, flow, and effort throughout performance is not present.

    N/A at this time.
  • The student has limited ability to present movement that demonstrates use of texture, attack, flow, and effort throughout performance.

    N/A at this time.
  • The student demonstrates quality of movement understanding and demonstrates some aspects of texture, attack, flow, and effort throughout the performance.

    N/A at this time.
  • The student demonstrates quality of movement understanding and demonstrates texture, attack, flow, and effort throughout the performance.

    N/A at this time.
  • Emotion, expression, and intent of movement are not demonstrated and projected throughout the performance.

    N/A at this time.
  • Emotion, expression, and intent of movement are rarely demonstrated and projected throughout the performance.

    N/A at this time.
  • Emotion, expression, and intent of movement are somewhat demonstrated and projected throughout the performance.

    N/A at this time.
  • Emotion, expression, and intent of movement are demonstrated and projected throughout the performance.
