Grades 3 and 4 Fitness Testing

In grades 3 and 4 students will be completing a fitness-gram test. FitnessGram assesses students fitness taking into account all components. FitnessGram is a valid assessment that measures all of the fitness components. Students results are compared to health fitness standards, and the program allows the students to see improvement.  Students are NOT compared to one another! We will c
omplete the fitness gram testing ( 2- 3) times throughout the school. The criteria's for the fitness gram testing are:

  • Cardiovascular Endurance ( The Pacer Test) 
  • Muscular Strength/Endurance ( Push - Ups and Sit Ups)
  • Flexibility ( sit and reach) 

Students will NOT be graded on their performance on FitnessGram. The assessment is for them to see where they are and will hopefully allow them to see improvement. 

We are looking and hoping to see improvement, it is by no means a tool for evaluation.  For more information on FitnessGram please look under the general information section of this website. If you have further questions, visit the FitnessGram website listed below:
