This page includes training and instructions for the DoDEA FitnessGram® Implementation.
DoDEA Software Training
Physical education teachers are asked to conduct fitness assessments for all K-12 students at the beginning of the PE term (Quarter-Semester-Year) and enter the data into DoDEA FitnessGram® software.
Only one series of tests is needed per student per year for elementary teachers. Data entry for elementary teachers should be completed NLT 01 June 2019. For secondary physical education teachers, you may choose to test per quarter or by the semester with a pre and a post test.
To ensure fitness data is consistent across DoDEA, the Physical Education ISS team (HQ+PAC+EU+AM) prescribes specific fitness assessment tests.Click here to see chart.
Teachers will record height and weight only for the aerobic capacity formula utilized for the one-mile run. Do not include the BMI data in the reports that are emailed to parents. You must deselect the BMI option in the reports section of FitnessGram. See software training above for more information.
We highly encourage you to use the resources available from FitnessGram to create an informative letter to parents that DoDEA uses FitnessGram for a common assessment among our students in support of Priority 1.
Please coordinate with your Health/PE ISS about questions or concerns via MS Lync or Google Hangouts (please ensure you have video and audio capability installed).
