Beep Test Calculations

Here is a table of the number of shuttles required to run for each level of the beep test, with calculations for the speeds, times and distances for each level. This table is based on the commonly used version of the test, and applies to the PACER test too. There is also a more complete table which lists the time and distance for every 20m shuttle. Alternatively, you can use the Excel spreadsheet that I created which automatically calculates many of these values for any test result. See the web page on beep test versions for more information about variations of the test.
