A SURVEY AND COMPARISON OF YOUTH FITNESS 1958-1965.
HUNSICKER, PAUL A.; REIFF, GUY G.
PHYSICAL FITNESS TESTS WERE CONDUCTED ON PUPILS THROUGHOUT THE COUNTRY. THE PUPILS SELECTED WERE ADMINISTERED THE YOUTH FITNESS TEST, AND THE RESULTS REPRESENTED THE BEST AVAILABLE DATA IN THE FIELD. THE RESULTS WERE CODED AND STATISTICAL ANALYSES MADE. THE GENERAL CONCLUSION DRAWN FROM THE RESULTS INDICATED THAT THE PHYSICAL FITNESS LEVEL OF PUBLIC SCHOOL CHILDREN, GRADES 5 TO 12, IN 1965 WAS ABOVE THAT OF SIMILAR TESTS CONDUCTED IN 1953. THE ULTIMATE OBJECTIVE OF A PHYSICAL FITNESS PROGRAM IS SUGGESTED TO BE THE SENSITIZING OF THE PUPIL TO THE NEED FOR MAINTAINING A PHYSICAL FITNESS LEVEL THROUGHOUT LIFE. (RS)
