Physical Fitness Test (PFT)
Training
January 19, 20, 26, 27
Presented by
Cedric Latreille & Matt Stewart
Objective of PFT Training
 Test Site Coordinators (TSC) and Test
Examiners:
 will
be knowledgeable of state and district
policies regarding the PFT in order to ensure
proper administration and scoring of the
assessments
1
Test Site Coordinator Responsibilities
 Attend training
 Train test examiners
 Receive Fitnessgram Kits (includes manual)
 Ensure that every grade 5, 7, and 9 student
is tested
 Coordinate
the testing of students not
enrolled in a PE class
 Ensure all test results are entered in the FG9
2
Test Examiner Responsibilities
 Attend training
 Test every grade 5, 7, and 9 student
 Enter test results into the FG9
3
What’s New
 New Aerobic Capacity Standards:

Use of VO2max values
 Updated Healthy Fitness Zones


NI – Needs Improvement
Very Lean
 Fitnessgram 9:

Web-based and accessible from any computer with
internet access


The Fitnessgram®
 Is designated as the Physical Fitness Test
 Students are assessed in six fitness areas:






Aerobic Capacity
Body Composition
Abdominal Strength
Trunk Extension Strength
Upper Body Strength
Overall Flexibility
 Scored using criterion-referenced standards
5
Testing Window
 Testing Window:

Monday, March 14 to Friday, March 25
 Make-ups:

Monday, March 28 to Friday, April 1
 Scores in FG9 by:

Friday, April 1
 Conditioning Window:

Monday, January 24 to Friday, March 11
6
Who to Test?
 All grade 5, 7, and 9 students, including:
 Students not enrolled in P.E. class
 Students on a block schedule
 No opt-out provision
 Students with medical issues are to be given as
much of the test as conditions permit
 IEP determines how Students with Disabilities
(SWDs) will participate
7
Healthy Fitness Zones (HFZ)
 Revised standards reflect levels of fitness and body
composition that provide protection against health
risks associated with obesity or inadequate fitness
 Use of Common Health Indicator:

Metabolic Syndrome is a group of risk factors that
collectively promote the development of cardiovascular
disease and increases the risk of diabetes:

high fasting glucose
high waist circumference
high triglycerides
low high density lipoprotein cholesterol and

high blood pressure



8
Healthy Fitness Zones (HFZ)
 Performance goal for all test areas is the HFZ
 Age and gender specific

Aerobic Capacity factors in Body Composition
 Needs Improvement (NI) Standards


Some Risk – potential for future health risks is possible
High Risk – potential for future health risks is probable
 Very Lean Standard

May not be best for health. Factors responsible should be
considered – naturally lean or inappropriate nutrition?
 Upper limits of the HFZ range were removed
9
Partially Tested Students
 Untested fitness area(s) are counted as not
being in the HFZ
 The California Department of Education
(CDE) reports PFT data as “% In HFZ” and
“% Not In HFZ”

Six Fitness Areas
Fitness Area
Assessment
 15-Meter PACER or
Aerobic Capacity
 20-Meter PACER or
 One-Mile Run
Body Composition
 Body Mass Index (height & weight) or
 Bioelectric Impedance Analyzer
Abdominal Strength
 Curl-Up
Trunk Extension Strength
 Trunk Lift
 Push-Up or
Upper Body Strength
 Modified Pull-Up or
 Flexed Arm Hang
Overall Flexibility
 Shoulder Stretch or
 Sit & Reach
12
Additional Assessment Info
 Do not use skin calipers to determine body composition


Liability issue
Inaccurate unless properly trained
 Elementary schools should use the PACER


More positive experience for the students
Accurately measured course issue is avoided
13
New Aerobic Capacity Standards
 Use of VO2max values


VO2max - maximum capacity of an individual’s body to
transport and use oxygen during incremental exercise
Calculated using PACER laps or mile-run time and BMI
 No change in administration, but students can no
longer pre-determine PACER laps or mile run needed
 Lookup Tables for estimates:

 Blanks vs. Zeros
 A zero indicates a test was attempted and the student
scored a zero
 A blank indicates a test was not administered
 Mile Run:
 Enter 59:59 for students who attempt, but do not finish
 15-Meter PACER:
 No need to convert to 20-Meter laps anymore
22
