Phillips, Sharon R.; Marttinen, Risto; Mercier, Kevin
Strategies: A Journal for Physical and Sport Educators, v30 n5 p19-24 2017
Fitness assessment can be an important and useful component of physical education. This article discusses how to avoid the pitfalls that lead to negative student experiences with fitness assessment and presents research-based suggestions for creating a positive experience for all students. A section to help teachers understand how to use fitness assessment properly within the physical education program is included, with examples of lesson ideas and resources aligned with each recommendation. It is hoped that teachers will use this information to help students to gain the benefits of participating in fitness assessment as part of their physical education program.
