If you are a customer in one of the states that has chosen to implement Fitnessgram software statewide, check the left-hand side of this page for a link to state-specific information to help you implement the program effectively in your school system.
In 2007, Texas and Delaware chose Fitnessgram program and software for their data collection of fitness test results for their state-wide implementation programs. Fitnessgram also met an equally important need: providing individualized, educational reports for both students and parents. Working in partnership with both states, Human Kinetics (the sole provider of Fitnessgram) and The Cooper Institute were able to help them ensure smooth program implementation.
Making positive, sweeping changes in physical education takes time and is dependent upon gathering the appropriate data. Fitness test results are the logical first step in this process. California recently made a significant commitment to improving their physical education program after reviewing Fitnessgram data collected for millions of students over past years. New York City Public Schools made similar positive use of their extensive Fitnessgram data.
Thanks to the latest developments in the software, the use of Fitnessgram at this level is now possible for states, metro areas, and very large districts that want to collect and aggregate data and generate a wide variety of reports for data analysis. We can help refine the data questions for analysis and work through the critical decisions that need to be made to provide sound educational choices for your students. Human Kinetics can also customize these reporting options to specific district or state mandates.
If your state, metro area, or large district is considering using Fitnessgram, please contact us. We can help bring your vision of meaningful assessment from initial conception to final implementation.
