This paper explores the evolving landscape of assessment in Physical Education (PE), highlighting the shift from traditional physical performance metrics to a more comprehensive, inclusive evaluation of student well-being and skills. We discuss the multifaceted purposes of assessment in PE, including the development of motor skills, physical fitness, cognitive understanding, and affective behaviors towards physical activity. The paper delves into various assessment types such as formative, summative, authentic, and peer assessments, each contributing uniquely to understanding and enhancing student learning. We also examine the tools and methods used in modern PE assessments, including technology integration, which offers real-time data and personalized feedback. Challenges like the need for professional development and the balance between diverse objectives and practical constraints are addressed. Best practices are outlined, emphasizing clear objectives, diverse strategies, constructive feedback, and inclusive practices. Looking ahead, the paper discusses future directions driven by technological innovations, professional development, and a student-centered approach. This study aims to provide a comprehensive understanding of current trends in PE assessment and offer insights into future developments that foster a supportive and effective learning environment, nurturing a positive, lifelong relationship with physical activity and health.
