A Critical Analysis of the AAHPER Youth Fitness Test.
Bolonchuk, W. W.
This document focuses on the question of validity of the AAHPER Youth Fitness Test. Major emphasis of the study is on comparisons between the original test and the UND Revision. Part 1 provides an introduction to the test battery and considers the reliability of the test items and the establishment of validity based on comparisons between the criterion measure and the resulting score. Part 2 discusses the test situation providing the basis for this study. Sections include general test procedure, how the subjects were chosen, the tests administered, and the experimental design and statistical hypothesis of the test. Part 3 presents the results of the two tests including reliability and validity estimates. Part 4 contains conclusions on the reliability of the tests and compares the AAHPER and the UND revision tests. The appendixes attached include materials sent to the subjects, the score card used, and a list of references. (JS)
