June 23, 2021


BUFFALO, NY - Wheatfield resident Clancy Seymour, an associate professor and director of health, physical education and sport pedagogy at Canisius, is a co-editor on two new versions of the Curriculum and Assessment Guidance Document (CAGD2), recently released by the New York State Association for Health, Physical Education and Dance (NYS AHPERD).


The publications  provide developmentally appropriate content and sample assessments in physical education that  allow students to acquire skills, knowledge, confidence and motivation through participation in quality K-12 physical education programs. 


The Curriculum and Assessment Guidance Document is broken into two separate guides: an elementary and secondary version.  In addition, the CAGD unpacks the revised New York State Physical Education Learning Standards (2020) and includes an amended adapted physical education services section.  The CAGD2 is a resource that connects the revised New York State Physical Education Learning Standards (2020) with guidance regarding curriculum and assessment recommendations for K-12 physical education practitioners and administrators in New York. 


Seymour co-edited the CAGD2 with Alisa James, PhD, professor of physical education at SUNY College at Brockport.   

One of 27 Jesuit universities in the nation, Canisius is the premier private university in Western New York. Canisius prepares leaders – intelligent, caring, faithful individuals – able to pursue and promote excellence in their professions, their communities and their service to humanity.
