This assessment is an annual assessment measuring a variety of Health-Related Physical Fitness Categories - Cardio-Respiratory Endurance, Flexibility, Muscular Strength and Muscular Endurance. Students scores are based on their respective gender/class and then students are 'percent-ranked' for each category assessment; finally, an average of all the assessments is calculated to determine their annual physical fitness score. Report Cards will have a comment regarding the Fitness Assessment Results. If a student does not complete a portion of the assessment, then the entire 15% will be deducted from their grade - PE teachers provide ample time for make-ups and re-tests. Medical Excuses do not negatively affect a students grade based on the fitness assessment.
