The article discusses a study that investigated the accountability task structures related to systematic evaluation, formal assessment and objective grading procedures of 11 high school physical education teachers in 10 U.S. schools. The researches discuss the teachers' perceptions of the assessment process and the role it should play in physical education. They also describe and evaluate the procedures used in the student assessment process. In addition, the study asked whether the teachers actions support their beliefs with respect to student assessment. Data were collected through a questionnaire designed to determine the teachers' perception of the process and to have the teachers self-report their grading process.
