As Formative and Shared Assessment (F&SA) and significant learning are given scant attention in physical education (PE) subjects in the Primary School Education Degree course, there is a need to analyse the students’ perception of the possibilities and limitations of F&SA in the context of an educational proposal based on Project Oriented Learning (POL). A methodological approach was used for the study, carried out by means of a Likert scale questionnaire, which was quantitative while the scope was descriptive. The study was carried out on a sample of 651 students between 2014 and 2020. The results show that the students considered the F&SA approach useful for improving their acquisition of professional skills and the development of functional and meaningful learning. They also thought it was necessary to strengthen the negotiation of this assessment at the beginning of the subject and that a stable and experienced teaching staff was required to carry out this type of project. From the results we concluded that students should be given a voice in these possibilities and limitations to improve their own teaching practice in the area of PE in the Early Childhood Education Degree course, as it would help them to feel qualified to teach this discipline in their future professional careers.
