It provides tests for aerobic capacity; details how to determine body composition through skinfold measurements, body mass index, and other methods; and shows how to test for muscular strength, endurance, and flexibility. It also answers physical activity questions related to FITNESSGRAM and guides teachers in interpreting FITNESSGRAM results.
