Fitnessgram is a comprehensive health-related fitness assessment and computerized reporting system. It was developed out of the Cooper Institute in Dallas, Texas. The use of this test is to emphasize personal fitness for health rather than goals based on sport/skill performance. The Fitnessgram test (assessment) is given to students in 3rd through 12th grades in the Kenmore District twice a school year. The goal is to improve scores from the first test taken in the fall to the second taken in spring.
The kid’s perform each test to the best of their ability. They are trying to get into their Healthy Fitness Zone that Fitnessgram created for each test component. Based on your child scores, Fitnessgram generates feedback for your child. This feedback provides the kids with helpful tips to reach their Healthy Fitness Zones or to continue their fitness successes. The feedback generated on the right side of the report is not created by your child's Physical Education teacher; it is generated as a part of the student report.
Please contact your child's Physical Education teacher if you have any questions.
