Abstract: A theoretical, movement learning model with major emphasis geared toward assessing quality in movement learning experiences in the entirety of elementary school physical education was developed for use in professional preparation. The completed model exhibited the reflective and reflexive knowledges in the nature of the thought processes involved in the creative process of model designing. Professional leaders in a number of disciplines, but particularly curriculum leaders, have indicated a need for models concerned with the processes of model designing. The development of the model was based on a conceptualization of a quality, movement learning experience. Model components and subcomponents accrued primarily from curriculum literature in education and physical education. Thrusts from philosophy, psychology, and art were evident as well. New data or emerging knowledges which dealt with assessment and movement learning theory evolved through the functioning of personal meanings of the writer in relation to the distinctive philosophical stance of movement education (AAHPER:1975). The emerging knowledges within the study represented the capacity of the model to be extended.
