    Lim, Carol Boon San
    In the past 2 decades, major progress in understanding the relationship between physical education (PE) instructional processes and learning outcomes had been made. Improved observational methods for assessing instructional processes and the use of this information to better understand the teaching and learning context have contributed to this knowledge. However, the general quality of Singapore school PE instruction is relatively unknown due to a relative paucity of research in this area. The development and use of an appropriate observation protocol for use in a PE lesson context can help record one or more instructional processes pertinent to PE in a school setting. The purpose of this study was to provide an analysis of activity structures in PE classes across the different grade levels. Data for this study were drawn primarily from 35 videotaped PE lessons across 8 schools in 19 content areas. The presentation will provide insights to the different activity structures most commonly observed in the different PE grade settings. Furthermore, opportunities for students to achieve the different objectives of PE as indicated in the PE curriculum will also be highlighted, together with recommendations to support the teaching and learning of PE in schools.
