Abstract

Numerous fitness testing activities are in progress in our public schools of the United States today. As a result of this testing many physical educators believe physical education programs should stress basic conditioning activities. Physical education can be better taught and promoted if knowledge of present status is obtained through testing. These testing programs also create interest in the fitness of youth. The purpose of this study is to analyze the physical fitness and the physical education programs or selected schools in South Dakota by administering the Kraus-Weber Test of Minimum Muscular Fitness and the AAHPER Physical Fitness Test, utilizing the Health and Physical Education Score Card No. I and II, and comparing results to national standards. The selected schools are as follows: Mark Twain Elementary School, Sioux Falls; Hurley Public Schools, Hurley; Arlington Public Schools, Arlington; and Volga Public Schools, Volga.
