Annual fitness testing has been a part of physical education for many decades. These tests are standardized to make comparisons and drive decision making at the district and state level.
For schools with a high student/teacher ratio, data collection for physical education (PE) teachers can be challenging. Capturing test data typically starts on paper then is transferred to a digital format, which is a time consuming and cumbersome task.
The combination of better Wi-Fi access on schools grounds and the availability of mobile devices opens the door to more efficient fitness testing and data capture.
With PhysFit PFT, capture only the physical fitness test data you need, and in the way that works best for you. Reduce administrative burden on staff and cut the time needed for students to complete tests. PhysFit PFT allows schools to have more robust PE programs. And students who are more physically fit, do better academically.
• Flexible rosters for collecting test results.
• Real-time data validations which eliminate recording errors.
• Summary view to quickly see completion status.
• Data export to combine results with other data or for analysis.
HOW IT WORKS
PE teachers start by selecting a segment of the physical fitness test, then choosing a student by grade, period, or teacher. Immediately record test results once the student finishes. Filter out completed tests, to easily identify which tests a student still needs to complete.
A comprehensive summary view checks students’ overall test completion as well as identifies any errors in data entry and incomplete testing.
Export the test data to compare results, conduct ad hoc analysis, or upload to your Learning Management System.
