Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned reportResearchpeer-review


In 2017 the National Monitoring Study of Student Achievement (NMSSA) study focused on the learning area of health and physical education. NMSSA assessed the subjects of health education and physical education. For the purposes of this report, the learning area is referred to as health and PE.

There were three assessments: Critical Thinking in Health and PE (CT), Learning Through Movement (LTM) and Well-being. Contextual information about learning and teaching in health and PE was gathered from students, teachers and principals using a set of questionnaires.

Health and PE was last assessed by NMSSA in 2013. The 2013 and 2017 CT measurement scales were linked on the basis of assessment tasks that were used at both points in time.

This report is designed to provide a succinct overview of key findings from the 2017 health and PE study. The report is supplemented by a report focused on curriculum insights, a technical report and an online interactive statistical application. All reports and the interactive application can be found on the NMSSA website.2
