Trust And The Beep Test

Recently we have been learning about what it means to be a trustworthy team member.

There are many times in school and outside of school that we work together with others. In some of these instances, if one person does not play their part well enough, then the team will fail to achieve what they wanted. Koru 1 have identified some understanding of this when we constructed our learner licence criteria, which includes the statement, 'Contributes to a positive, supportive, and exciting learning community'.

One of the ways we have brought focus to this is in doing the beep test. Many adults will remember it form their own school days.

In pairs, we had one person doing the physical test while the other observed and kept a tally chart of each length run by the first person. The observer carried a lot of responsibility on their shoulders because the beep test is not easy and everyone running it wanted their scores recorded correctly.









We had some great efforts from many of our peers who were running. Talk about getting a sweat up!

When it came to the observing, we had lots of successful observers who accurately recorded each of their partner's lengths. However, there were a few instances when concentration lapsed and some observers missed marking lengths.

This was an interesting exercise for us, and one we are sure to remember, as the trust that we put into our peers was such an interesting topic for discussion afterwards. Did I show I was a trustworthy partner? Would my partner choose me to work with again? If not, what feedback are they giving me and what does this mean for me in the future?

Evidence of our reflections can be found in our digital portfolios. Some of us have also decided to write blog posts about our experience.

  17. I really liked it because i did really well and my friends that watch me at the same time as my partner did said that i did really well, plus i bet my partner (Jett) by him getting a score of 87 and me i got a score of 125! I am still proud of how much my partner got. If we add those 2 numbers (87 and 125) well...... i dont know what that would make, I know it know its now its 212 (87 + 125 =212)
    The end

  21. When the class first did the beep test my buddy ran and I observed.He done really well,and if I can remember of the top of my head I am pretty sure he got 115 but I am not sure. The next week I ran and I got 91. I think I probably could of got at least 100 if i did not get the stitch or get as puffed as I was.

  22. when the class first did the beep test my buddy ran and i observed i trusted my buddy because he marked all of my points on the tally chart.when i was running half way throw i got the stich but i didn't give up.i felt so happy because i was the last one standing and if i can remember i got about 210 runs and if the beeper beeped when you wern't at the line you would get a warning and if you did it again you would be out and your buddy would have to count how much you got.
