Abstract

A two week study done to analyze the potential change in physical activity during a given lesson through the variable of student grouping strategies. Using the moderateto- vigorous-physical-activity guidelines as the key assessment tool data was gathered to measure student physical activity levels. The differences in grouping strategies was the control week of allowing for student selected grouping while the proceeding week included instructor based grouping with the intent of mixing class social groups. Affective assessments were given halfway through the collection period to survey student opinion and predictions of activity levels and to see their views on grouping strategies used.
