    The Elementary School Act determines the method of grading in school subjects including Physical Education (PE). We wanted to determine opinion of primary school teachers on individual methods of grading in PE in the first and the second triad of the elementary school. We also wanted to find out the differences among teachers who teach in the first and the second triad as well as the differences among the teachers with different length of employment. The sample included 855 primary school teachers. The results showed that teachers mostly agree with the method of grading that is currently valid. As the second most recommended way of grading, the grading with word-grading on a three-level grading scale was proposed for the first as well as the second triad. This method, however, has not been used in Slovenia for a number of years now. Based on the advantages and disadvantages of individual methods of grading we can assume, however, that some teachers have insufficient knowledge of the purpose of grading in PE. It looks like they do not have the accurate information about issues of descriptive grading, too. This could be concerning due to the fact that this kind of grading is compulsory in the first and the second grade of elementary school.
