Assessing the psychomotor domain during dance involves evaluating a person's physical skills, coordination, and movement patterns. This was done during the lesson with peer assessment by observing the dancer's posture, balance, footwork, arm, and hand movements, and overall coordination with the music. 

Overall, students were introduced to and learned three steps in each dance (more than 80%). Some students were commenting on specific challenges they faced while others had no issues. The most common challenge mentioned was staying on beat and maintaining energy throughout the dance. The Salsa dance was mentioned multiple times as being challenging, but some dancers were able to prevail and perform well. Other steps, like Susie Q, were also mentioned as being difficult for some dancers. 

However, some feedback was overwhelmingly positive, with some dancers being described as outstanding and flawless in their performances. The main takeaway seems to be that while there were some challenges, many dancers were able to overcome them and perform well overall. 

Affective Domain

Assessing student learning in the affective domain of physical education involves our emotions toward learning and how that develops as we progress from a low-order process, such as listening, to a higher-order process, like resolving an issue.

 Overall, the feedback suggests that teamwork is a valuable skill in a wide range of activities and jobs. Many responses focused on sports, including football, soccer, tennis, lacrosse, and rowing, as well as activities such as cheerleading and horseback riding. Other responses included group work in school, working on projects or labs, and playing video games. Additionally, teamwork was mentioned in the context of jobs such as construction, retail, and medical work, as well as law firms and camps. Overall, the feedback suggests that teamwork is an important skill that can be applied in a variety of settings, from recreational activities to professional settings. In the future, I will include more team activities that are close to the sports that students told before.

Cognitive Domain (Self-assessment)

Assessing student learning in the cognitive domain of physical education involves evaluating their understanding and knowledge of concepts related to physical activity, movement, and health. Here are some assessment methods that can be used: 

Assessing student learning in the cognitive domain of Hustle, Swing, and Line dances is important as it helped me as a teacher to identify areas where students need further support or instruction. 90% of the students know when Swing and Hustle originated and where those dances could be performed. Results of the assessments showed that students had challenged to learn Line dance and particularly the turning part of this dance. In conclusion, I'll spend more instructional time on this part of the routine to improve their understanding of turns.
