Abstract

Internationally, there has been considerable interest in the development, implementation and enactment of new official curriculum texts, associated assessment and pedagogical practices in examination and senior secondary physical education (Brown & Penney, 2013; Green, 2005; Thorburn, 2008). This field of research examining physical education as an examinable subject is a recent innovation in countries such as Australia, the United Kingdom, Ireland and New Zealand. With respect to curriculum, pedagogy and assessment each country must consider conceptual and curriculum coherence issues, and while individual countries (and some jurisdictions within these countries) grapple with such issues, they also face notably common and consistent questions within and about examination and senior secondary physical education. This book seeks to connect, engage and extend political, academic and professional debates related to worthwhile and essential knowledge within examination and senior secondary physical education and how this knowledge is translated into pedagogical practice in the classroom. It extends and complements other texts in the series of books published in the Routledge Physical Education and Youth Sport Series (Edited by Professor David Kirk), by presenting an informed and unique contribution focussing on issues of policy and practice in examination and senior secondary physical education.
