AAHPER Youth Fitness Test Manual. Revised Edition.
American Alliance for Health, Physical Education, and Recreation, Washington, DC.
The Revised AAHPER Youth Fitness Test is a battery of six test items designed to give a measure of physical fitness for boys and girls in grades 5-12. The tests were selected to evaluate specific aspects of physical status which, taken together, give an overall picture of fitness. Tests can be given in the gymnasium or outdoors. They are as follows: (a) pull-up (with flexed-arm hang for girls)--for judging arm and shoulder girdle strength; (b) flexed leg sit-up--for judging efficiency of abdominal and hip flexor muscles; (c) shuttle run--for judging speed and change of direction; (d) standing broad jump--for judging speed; and (e) 600-yard run-walk (with optional runs of one mile or 9 minutes for ages 10-12, or one and a half miles or 12 minutes for ages 13 and older)--for judging cardiovascular efficiency. The following information is given for each test: equipment, description, rules, and scoring. Also included in this document are a history of the test, methods for recording and comparing test scores, tables with various percentile scores and norms, and recording forms. (JA)
