AAPHER Youth Fitness Test Manual. Revised 1976 Edition.
Hunsicker, Paul A.; Reiff, Guy G.
This test manual was designed to aid recreation and community leaders in determining the performance levels of those who participate in their programs and, where appropriate, in working towards higher levels of achievement. The first section discusses the test and the national norms that have been determined for it. It is stated that the test is a battery of six test items designed to give a measure of physical fitness for both boys and girls in grades five through twelve. Charts are provided which compare average scores on the tests in 1958, 1965, and 1975. The second section contains detailed instructions for administering each test. The next three sections discuss the three types of forms used for recording the test data, and how to compare test results. Tables are also presented in these sections for use in the comparison of test scores. The final two sections contain information on testing, and copies of the recording forms. Appended is a list of participating schools and personnel in the 1974-75 test. (RC)
