Physical Education Online Marker Training

The Online Marker Training provides information on marker roles and responsibilities, features of assessment, differences between current internal assessments and external assessments in this trial. Subject-specific tasks are a key aspect of the online training and must be completed. It should take about 20 minutes and give you an understanding of what being a marker involves.

Example 1

For this training, we will be using Supplementary materials from the 2017 External Assessment Trial for Physical Education, which contain a sample instrument. You will be asked to make judgments based on evidence in responses.

The example below is taken from the sample instrument, question 9.  

Consider the response. Scroll down for a judgment about this response.

QUESTION 9 (150 words) 

An athlete completes a 30-second run at high intensity. After fully recovering, the same athlete completes a 120-second run at high intensity. Compare and contrast the energy system contributions during the 30-second run with the energy system contributions during the 120-second run.

Correct answer


Annotated response and explanation


QUESTION 9 (150 words) 

An athlete completes a 30-second run at high intensity. After fully recovering, the same athlete completes a 120-second run at high intensity. Compare and contrast the energy system contributions during the 30-second run with the energy system contributions during the 120-second run.

Lines 9–10 show how this response compares the use of the lactic acid energy system in the 30-second duration and the 120-second duration.

Question 1

  • Lines 2-5
  • Lines 4-7
  • Lines 6-9

QUESTION 9 (150 words)
An athlete completes a 30-second run at high intensity. After fully recovering, the same athlete completes a 120-second run at high intensity. Compare and contrast the energy system contributions during the 30-second run with the energy system contributions during the 120-second run.

Consider the response above.

Click on the most appropriate option to answer the question below.

In which lines does the response make a comparison about the contributions of the lactic acid energy system for the two runs of different durations?

Question 1 answer

Annotated response and explanation

QUESTION 9 (150 words) 

An athlete completes a 30-second run at high intensity. After fully recovering, the same athlete completes a 120-second run at high intensity. Compare and contrast the energy system contributions during the 30-second run with the energy system contributions during the 120-second run.

Lines 4–7 of the response discusses the role of the lactic acid energy system for both the 30-second and the 120-second duration run, making it the correct answer.  

Lines 2–5 of the response discusses the contribution of the lactic acid system in relation to the 30-second run only.

Lines 6–9 of the response discusses the contribution of the aerobic energy system.

Example 2

The example below is taken from the sample instrument, question 10.  

Consider the response. Scroll down for a judgment about this response.

QUESTION 10 (150 words) 

Recommend a training method to improve an athlete’s energy requirements for a 120-second run at high intensity. Justify your recommendation by referring to the training principle of specificity.

Correct answer


Annotated response and explanation


QUESTION 10 (150 words) 

Recommend a training method to improve an athlete’s energy requirements for a 120-second run at high intensity. Justify your recommendation by referring to the training principle of specificity.

Lines 2 – 5 show how the response provides a justification for the use of interval training in targeting the energy system specific to this performance.

Question 2

  • Lines 1-4
  • Lines 6-9
  • Lines 7-10

QUESTION 10 (150 words)
Recommend a training method to improve an athlete’s energy requirements for a 120-second run at high intensity. Justify your recommendation by referring to the training principle of specificity.

 

 

Consider the response above.

Click on the most appropriate option to answer the question below.

In which lines does the response best demonstrate evidence of the Evaluating dimension from the syllabus?

Question 2 answer

Annotated response and explanation

QUESTION 10 (150 words) 

Recommend a training method to improve an athlete’s energy requirements for a 120-second run at high intensity. Justify your recommendation by referring to the training principle of specificity.

Lines 6–9 of the response provides a justification for targeting the aerobic energy system. Additionally, there is evidence of evaluation whereby the writer attempts to predict how intervals of high-intensity sprints within the fartlek training will benefit the lactic acid energy system.

Lines 1–4 of the response provide evidence of the Acquiring dimension as it describes what fartlek training is but does not analyse or evaluate the use or effectiveness of this training method in improving performance.

Lines 7–10 of the response analyses the contribution of the lactic acid energy system. It only provides a basic justification for targeting the lactic acid energy system.

Example 3

The example below is taken from the sample instrument, question 11.  

Consider the response. Scroll down for a judgment about this response.

QUESTION 11 (400 words) 

Refer to the training principles of intensity and duration to: 

• Evaluate the effectiveness of the training session in improving fitness for the physical activity that has been the focus of your study in Term 2 

• Recommend two changes to improve the specificity of the training session 

• Justify your decisions.


Correct answer


Annotated response and explanation


QUESTION 11 (400 words) 

Refer to the training principles of intensity and duration to: 

• Evaluate the effectiveness of the training session in improving fitness for the physical activity that has been the focus of your study in Term 2 

• Recommend two changes to improve the specificity of the training session 

• Justify your decisions.

Lines 6–8 shows how the response evaluates the effectiveness of the proposed training program in relation to the durations typically found in a netball performance. 

Lines 11–13 shows how the response evaluates the effectiveness of the proposed training program in relation to the levels of intensity typical of a netball performance.

Question 3

  • Lines 1-3
  • Lines 5-6
  • Lines 7-10
  • Lines 13-16

QUESTION 11 (400 words)
Refer to the training principles of intensity and duration to:

• Evaluate the effectiveness of the training session in improving fitness for the physical activity that has been the focus of your study in Term 2

• Recommend two changes to improve the specificity of the training session

• Justify your decisions.

Consider the response above.

Click on the most appropriate option to answer the question below.

In which lines does the response best refer to the training principles of duration and intensity to evaluate the effectiveness of the training program?

Question 3 answer

Annotated response and explanation

QUESTION 11 (400 words) 

Refer to the training principles of intensity and duration to: 

• Evaluate the effectiveness of the training session in improving fitness for the physical activity that has been the focus of your study in Term 2 

• Recommend two changes to improve the specificity of the training session 

• Justify your decisions.

Lines 7–10 of the response demonstrates an evaluation of the duration and intensity of the proposed training program and provides justification by referring to the appropriate duration and intensity, typical of a soccer performance.

Lines 1–3 of the response provides a basic analysis of the movements typically found in the soccer performance.

Lines 5–6 of the response makes a brief and unsupported evaluation of the training program in relation to the principles of duration and intensity.

Lines 13–16 of the response provides a recommendation for improving the training program. It demonstrates part of the Evaluating dimension of the syllabus, however, it does not evaluate the effectiveness of the training program.
