PACER Test 15m & 20m Levels and Speeds

The PACER Test is a shuttle type aerobic fitness test (like the Beep Test), and is part of the FitnessGram and Brockport test battery. There are two versions, the 15m and the 20m PACER tests. The 15m test has the same speed for each level, but requires more laps per level in the one-minute time period.

Comparison of number of laps for 15m and 20m PACER tests

The running speed for each level is the same for the 15m and 20m tests, though the number of laps for each level is greater for the 15m test.
