Assessment of skill and performance is important for monitoring progress and providing guidance for future training. Knowing the characteristics of skilled performers helps to guide the coach in skill assessment to ensure performance is moving towards mastery of the particular skill.
Assessment of skill and performance often uses objective and subjective measures to determine how well the skill or performance was executed. For HSC PDHPE it is important to know the difference between object and subjective performance measures as well as how the reliability and validity of a test increase its objectivity.
There are a number of sports that require particular criteria to be used to assess performance. However, even at the basic level, most people watch a performance with a particular bias and person expectations, which they use as criteria in judging a performance.
Finally, you are required to apply this knowledge and create your own subjective and objective performance measures, which you then evaluate.
