Physical literacy is creating significant interest worldwide due to its holistic nature and the potential it has to impact of people's lives. It is underpinning many physical education programmes, coaching strategies, health initiatives, and policy makers' decisions. However, the complex philosophical and holistic nature of the concept has meant that methods used to chart/assess/measure progress have been very much dependent on the pedagogue's interpretation of the concept. This paper will provide and review of current practices and issues related to charting/assessing/measuring progress of an individual's journey. It will go on to highlight considerations that, we suggest, should be made by any organisation developing methods to chart/assess/measure progress.
