The Effects of Daily Physical Education on the Fitness Levels of Elementary School Students.
Seidenberg, Sharon I.; And Others
To determine the status of students' physical fitness, a test battery consisting of pullups, curlups, shuttle run, and one-mile walk/run was administered to both sexes. The mean fitness test results of 9-year-old students from a school participating in physical education five times a week were compared to the mean fitness test results of 9-year-old students from other schools in the same school corporation in which students participated in physical education twice a week. The experimental group means were also compared to national means. The results showed that school means for both boys and girls on all four fitness tests were higher than the corporation means, showing significant differences in the pullup test. The school means were higher than the national means for both the pullup test for girls and the curlup test for boys. (Author)
