Performance Tasks for Health and Physical Education

Common Core PE has created 10 health and physical education performance tasks that will help your students prepare for the performance task section of the Smarter Balance Assessment.  

Common Core PE performance tasks involves significant interaction of students with stimulus materials and/or engagement in a problem solution, ultimately leading to an exhibition of the students’ application of knowledge and skills, often in writing or spoken language. Stimuli include a variety of information forms (e.g., readings, video clips, data), as well as an assignment or problem situation. A key component of college and career readiness is the ability to integrate knowledge and skills across multiple content standards. Common Core PE addresses this ability through performance tasks that includesteacher led classroom activity, student driven research, use of technology, and a writing assessment.

Current performance task topics includes:

  • Target Heart Rate
  • Smoking
  • Drug abuse
  • First Aid
  • Flexibility/Stretching
  • Push-Ups
  • Abdominal  Exercises
  • Healthy Habits
  • Heart Rate/Pulse
