                       CONNECTICUT STATE PHYSICAL FITNESS ASSESSMENT
There are four compenents to the Connecticut State Physical Fitness Assessment. Each test assesses a different area of
fitness.
1. Modified sit and reach: the objective for this test is to measure flexibility of the lower back
and hamstrings.

2. Partial Curl-ups: the partial curl-up measures abdominal strength and endurance. *This
strength is important to good health because low levels are associated with bad posture and
lower back pain in later years.

3. Right-Angle Push-Ups: The objective of this test is to measure upper-body strength and
endurance.

4. 20 Meter Pacer Test: The objective for the test is to measure cardio respiratory or aerobic
endurance. *The importance of cardio respiratory fitness lies in the fact that heart disease is a
leading cause of death in our society.
