Fitnessgram 2013-2014

 

The Texas Education Agency has mandated annual fitness testing for the state of Texas for all students 3rd-12th grades.  The TEA has selected FITNESSGRAM to serve as teh state-wide fitness assessment tool in which all school districts will administer the required tests

FITNESSGRAM was developed by The Cooper Institute to facilitate communicating fitness testing results to students and parents.  The assessment measures three components of health-related physical fitness using criterion referenced standards, called Healthy Fitness Zones, to determine students' fitness levels based on what is optimal for good health.  The three components that have been identified as important to overall health and function:
1.  Aerobic Capacity
2.  Body Composition
3.  Muscular Strength, Endurance and Flexibility

Students are encouraged to wear comfortable attire and gym shoes for the testing day.  Parents may contact the individual campus for a copy of their child's results.  Composite results for Northwest ISD will be sent to the Texas Education Agency as required by law.
