Physical performance: Year 11 aerobics

This sample has been compiled by the QSA to help teachers plan and develop assessment instruments for individual school settings. It provides opportunities for students to demonstrate the following dimensions of the general objectives: acquiring, applying and evaluating.

The assessment instrument demonstrates Sports Aerobics and is accompanied by a video of the student performance, presented as four short clips followed by the complete physical performance. The student work is presented without the accompanying music due to copyright restrictions.

The "A" standard student performance matches the following descriptors:

  • Physical responses are fluently and accurately combined and performed in synchronisation to the music.

  • Comprehensive and accurate understanding of the rules and sophisticated performance strategies are demonstrated through the wide range of physical responses performed.

Notes on the response
Physical responses evident throughout the routine include compulsory elements and skills included from the four categories of static strength; dynamic strength; jumps, leaps and power; and flexibility and balance. Sport Aerobics rules and performance strategies refer to competition area; selection of music and interpretation; travel during the routine; inclusion of start and end pose; and choreography.

The "A" standard student performance matches the following descriptors:

  • Consistently and successfully applies and combines a wide range of individual strategies to enhance the physical performance and aesthetic appeal of the routine.

Notes on the response
Individual strategies involve enhancing movement patterns by combining compulsory elements and skills; modifying arm lines, leg lines and travel direction to maximise use of floor space and synchronise movements with musical cues; and making decisions about intensity of skill execution to enhance music synchronisation and aesthetic appeal.

The "A" standard student performance matches the following descriptors:

  • Through analysing, synthesising and evaluating a wide range of physical responses of self and others, the performer consistently and successfully reproduces physical responses.

Notes on the response
Video analysis and evaluation of their own and others' preliminary performances allowed the performer to reflect on individual strengths and weaknesses and enhance fluency and accuracy of physical responses.

The "A" standard student performance matches the following descriptors:

  • Consistent and effective modification and initiation of change of performance strategies to solve problems in routine execution.

Notes on the response
Initiation of change in physical responses and modification of performance strategies should become evident through continuous performances. For example, the performer initiated change in the intensity of skills and compulsory elements.

Sport Aerobics performance assessing an authentic student physical response to the demands of the physical activity and the syllabus standards.

  • The authentic context is characterised by the creation of a performance within the constraints of the rules, safety and performance strategies of the physical activity
