The purpose of this study was to compare the physical fitness of the male students of Watertown junior High School with the national norms as established, and to determine the effects of 150 minutes of physical education per week on physical fitness. The authors statistically compared the scores from the initial test to the scores from the final test to check improvement during the school years. This study was limited to the male students, grades seven through nine, in the Watertown Junior High School. The AAHPER Youth Fitness Test was administered to 314 boys. The test battery was given at the beginning of the school term and again at the end of the school term. Standard statistical procedures were used to determine the significance of the results. Graphic presentations were made to show initial test results and final test results as compared to national norms.
