FitnessGram® Student Reports provide individual students and parents with information about their fitness levels from one test event to another, including performance against the Healthy Fitness Zone standards and suggestions for improving or maintaining fitness depending on performance.
The Reviewing the FitnessGram® Student Report handout located in SmartCoach is available to assist in reading the report.
Which test item will display on the FitnessGram® Student Report if my students complete two tests for the same component (e.g., 20M PACER and One-Mile Run for aerobic capacity)?
FitnessGram® Test Events provide achievement based on the health-related fitness component – not the test item. If two test items for the same component are entered in a test event, the FitnessGram® Student Report will automatically select one test item per component based on the reporting logic:
- Student passes one test and fails the other – the passing test item will display
- Student passes both tests – the recommended test item will display (PACER, Push-Up, Back Saver Sit-and Reach, BMI)
- Student fails both tests – the recommended test item will display (PACER, Push-Up, Back Saver Sit-and Reach, BMI)
Refer to the FitnessGram® Reference Guide for more information about recommended test items.
Why is aerobic capacity information hidden for students ages 5-9 even though they participated in an aerobic capacity test?
Aerobic capacity scores and feedback are not provided for students ages 5 through 9 years (K-3) because criterion standards are not available. For these younger students, the object of the test is simply to participate and begin learning how to take the test. Students who are 9 years old but in grade 4 can receive a score evaluated against the criterion standard for 10-year-old students; all 10-year-old students receive a score, regardless of grade level.
