State Mandated Assessment
Administered to Grades 3 through 8
Fitnessgram provides accurate assessment reports unique to each student according to their age, gender, and level of health-related fitness based on multiple components rather than just a single measure. These reports use the criterion-referenced Healthy Fitness Zone® standards, which research has shown to accurately measure the level of physical fitness necessary for good health. The results of these fitness assessments guide instruction.
Students are assessed in the fall and in the spring. The estimated average time it takes to complete the assessment is 1-2 hours.
