The problem of physical education and sports, as an integral part of the learning process in the Bulgarian school, which has a significant impact on the overall formation of the student's personality, is extremely relevant and significant, especially in terms of its effective organization and reporting. As a purposeful and organized process, physical education and sports are normatively conditioned, that is it is planned, organized and reported according to established state rules and norms – such as mandatory and standardized tests of the Ministry of Education and Science (MES), for example, which in their entirety place emphasis on the physical capacity of students. This circumstance reflects on the goals and objectives set in the curricula for the subject of physical education in the Bulgarian school, which do not affect the age and individual characteristics of students and do not refer to clear and precise criteria for reporting the results.All this creates conditions for directing the efforts of physical education teachers to the implementation of activities that do not fully form the physical culture of students, on the one hand, and on the other, create conditions for its biased and incorrect reporting and evaluation.The purpose of this article is to prove the relevance of the problem of the need for more effective reporting of the results of physical education and sports in the Bulgarian school through the application of innovative methods included in a developed and tested author's theoretical model.
