Abstract

The purpose of this study was to compare the Kraus-Weber test with the test prepared by the American Association for Health, Physical Education, and Recreation. To accomplish this purpose the following techniques and procedures were employed: (1) Correlation of the total Kraus-Weber test scores and the total AAHPER test scores. (2) Correlation between the individual items of the Kraus-Weber test and the individual items of the AAHPER test. (3) Correlation between the individual items of the Kraus-Weber test and the total AAHPER test score. (4) Correlation between the individual items of the AAHPER test and the total score of the Kraus-Weber test. The author was attempting to show whether or not these two tests measure the same physical traits or different ones, and also whether there are elements in either of the two tests which are closely related to elements in the other test or to the total scores of the other test. It is hoped that this study will provide information for school administrators and physical educators who may wish to inaugurate physical education programs or testing programs, and may also aid in the selection of events or activities best suited to develop all areas of the body.
