I recently wondered about the sorts of thing PE teachers did when it came to marking and feedback as part of their day to day work.
So, harnessing the the #pegeek tag and Google Forms, I created a survey for PE teachers worldwide to respond to. I then turned the data I received from the respondents into a visual representation, using Spicynodes. Spicynodes is pretty cool – clicking on each node gives you a connected narrative type effect.
Unfortunately (in a glass half empty view), only 14 PE people worldwide responded to the survey 🙁
Happily, though, (in a glass half full view) I got some response to the questions 🙂
Interestingly, there seemed to be not a lot of data about about whether the task, homework or tests were from practical or theory classes (probably due to my poor survey construction), and that might be the subject of a further survey in the future. But it appears plenty of marking and feedback is happening, mainly in theory classes. As a response to this post it would be great to hear about how people mark and feedback in practical lessons, especially if students are using apps and devices as their work tools.
