New York State Education Dept., Albany. Div. of Physical Education and Research.; State Univ. of New York, Albany.
The introductory portion of the manual presents a brief statement of the purpose of the test and its general features. The test itself is designed to provide schools with an instrument for periodic evaluation of status and progress in physical fitness of boys and girls in grades 4-12. The seven components measured are posture, accuracy, strength, agility, speed, balance, and endurance. Descriptions and directions are presented for all seven exercises, stressing the need for uniformity in the testing procedures. Raw scores, total physical fitness scores, and achievement levels are recorded by each student. The manual provides a section on the various uses and interpretations of the test results. Tables of achievement level norms for boys and girls in each grade are included along with a table for interpreting the achievement level of the class as a whole. (BRB)
