The Cooper Institute appreciates your commitment to keeping your students active and healthy throughout this time. As you navigate different learning environments, whether that is in-school, at-home, or a hybrid of both, we are here to support you. For schools that plan to complete the FitnessGram assessment this year, we strongly encourage you to do so in a safe environment. If you have not already, please read through our Recommendations that can be found in our SmartCoach Resources.
For many of you, a safe environment means having students complete a self-assessment. Now, we have the option to track this.
Upon creating a test event, you are now able to select “Self-Assessment” when determining Test Event Details.
Self-Assessment allows students to complete fitness assessment in a safe, home environment while presenting the opportunity for students to take ownership over their current fitness and health status during this unprecedented time. The self-assessment checkbox allows administrators to compare results from self-assessed to teacher-administered assessments.
