FITNESSGRAM is a health related
physical fitness assessment. Each of
the test items was selected to assess
important aspects of a student’s health
related fitness, not skill or agility.
Students are compared not to each
other, but to health fitness standards,
carefully established for each age and
gender, that indicate good health.
