The Brockport Physical Fitness Test revolutionized fitness testing for youngsters with disabilities when it first came out in 1999. This significantly updated edition takes up where the original left off, offering adapted physical education teachers the most complete health-related fitness testing program available for youngsters with physical and mental disabilities.
This new edition of Brockport Physical Fitness Test Manual: A Health-Related Assessment for Youngsters With Disabilities comes with an online web resource with reproducible charts and forms as well as video clips that demonstrate assessment protocol for the tests. The text helps teachers understand these aspects:
• The conceptual framework for testing
• How to administer tests to youngsters with various specific disabilities
The text also supplies a glossary and many appendixes, including a body mass index chart, guidelines on purchasing and constructing unique testing supplies, conversion charts for body composition and PACER, data forms, and frequently asked questions.
Brockport Physical Fitness Test Manual: A Health-Related Assessment for Youngsters With Disabilities is compatible with Fitnessgram 10. The text’s updates include standards and language that help teachers use Brockport and Fitnessgram side by side in providing youngsters and parents or guardians with the best possible individualized education programs (IEPs).
Through Brockport Physical Fitness Test Manual, adapted physical education teachers can do the following:
• Rely on research-based assessments and standards for people with disabilities.
• Provide youngsters with disabilities the same opportunities as other students to have their health-related fitness assessed.
• Apply a unified approach for all students based on the test’s compatibility with Fitnessgram.
• Create appropriate IEPs for students with disabilities.

Its online resources include reproducible forms and tables that help teachers administer the tests. Included in the online resources are video clips that demonstrate assessment protocol for the tests.
