Abstract: The evaluation tool for PE teacher effectiveness based on classroom observation developed by the United States shows two characteristics: on the one hand, based on the evaluation theory and education, establishing the evaluating indicators and evaluation process, strictly guaranteeing the qualification of assessors, and constantly optimizing the reliability and validity of the evaluation tools; on the other hand, identifying the effective classroom teaching behavior of PE teachers through empirical research, which provides an important reference for the diagnosis and improvement of teachers' teaching quality. This paper analyzes the evaluation tools of American PE teacher effectiveness, and holds that in the future, China should optimize the quality of PE teacher effectiveness evaluation from four aspects as follows: developing localized evaluation tools, training professional assessors, following the standardized evaluation process, and establishing interactive feedback mechanism.
