20 Page 3 of 20 | Sports Authority of India 17 19 Khelo India Fitness Assessment - Administration Manual Overview Fitness defines the ability to perform physical activity, and encompasses a wide range of abilities. Each activity and sports requires a specific set of skills, and so being fit for an activity or a sport does not necessarily make you fit for another. Fitness is generally divided into specific fitness categories or components, and each can be tested and trained individually. The following pages will help you do the Fitness Test Administration in your school more effectively using Khelo India Fitness Assessment App and viewing the School Dashboard on School Interface. BATTERY OF TESTS AGE GROUP 5-8 YEARS | CLASS 1-3 At Primary class 1-3, children should acquire Fundamental Movement Skills (FMS) leaving the learning of specific physical activities to later stages. FMS provide the building blocks for many physical activities, such as playing games, dance, and sport. Locomotor, Manipulative & Body Management abilities are key to success in most sports and physical activities. Abilities of children in class 1-3 which need to be measured and tracked are 1. Body Composition (BMI) 2. Coordination (Plate Tapping) 3. Balance (Flamingo Balance) which are important for controlling the body in various situations. AGE GROUP: 9-14 | Class 4 to 8 For Class 4 to 8, it is important for students to have an overall physical fitness. The following Components are to be considered in Physical Health and Fitness Profile: 4. Body Composition (BMI) 5. Strength a. Abdominal (Partial Curl-up) b. Muscular Endurance (Push Ups for Boys, Modified Push Ups for Girls)
6. Flexibility (Sit and Reach Test) 7. Cardiovascular Endurance (600 Meter Run) 8. Speed (50 mt. Dash) AGE GROUP: 15-18+ | Class 9 to 12 Page 4 of 20 | Sports Authority of India Khelo India Fitness Assessment - Administration Manual For Class 4 to 8, it is important for students to have an overall physical fitness. The following Components are to be considered in Physical Health and Fitness Profile: 1. Body Composition (BMI) 2. Strength a. Abdominal (Partial Curl-up) b. Muscular Endurance (Push Ups for Boys, Modified Push Ups for Girls) 3. Flexibility (Sit and Reach Test) 4. Cardiovascular Endurance (600 Meter Run) 5. Speed (50 mt. Dash) Page 5 of 20 | Sports Authority of India Khelo India Fitness Assessment - Administration Manual Test Descriptions for Children Body Mass Index What does it measure: Body Composition refers primarily to the distribution of muscle and fat in the body. Body size such as height, lengths and girths are also grouped under this component. The test performed is Body Mass Index (BMI), which is calculated from body Weight (W) and height(H). BMI = W / (H x H), where W = body weight in kilograms and H = height in meters. The higher the score usually indicating higher levels of body fat. Measuring Height Accurately Remove the participants shoes, bulky clothing, and hair ornaments, and unbraid hair that interferes with the measurement. Take the height measurement on flooring that is not
carpeted and against a flat surface such as a wall with no molding. Have the participant stand with feet flat, together, and back against the wall. Make sure legs are straight, arms are at sides, and shoulders are level. Make sure the participant is looking straight ahead and that the line of sight is parallel with the floor. Take the measurement while the participant stands with head, shoulders, buttocks, and heels touching the flat surface (wall). (See illustration.) Depending on the overall body shape of the participant, all points may not touch the wall. Use a flat headpiece to form a right angle with the wall and lower the headpiece until it firmly touches the crown of the head. Make sure the measurer's eyes are at the same level as the headpiece. Lightly mark where the bottom of the headpiece meets the wall. Then, use a metal tape to measure from the base on the floor to the marked measurement on the wall to get the height measurement. Accurately record the height to the nearest 0.1 centimeter. Page 6 of 20 | Sports Authority of India Infrastructure/ Equipment Required: Flat, Clean surface, Weighing Machine, Stadiometer/Measuring Tape pasted on a wall Scoring: Height recorded in cm and mm. Weight will be recorded in kilogram (kg) and grams (gms). Record the weight to the nearest decimal fraction (for
example, 25.1 kilograms). Accurately record the height to the nearest 0.1 centimeter. Khelo India Fitness Assessment - Administration Manual Measuring Weight Accurately Use a digital scale. Avoid using bathroom scales that are spring-loaded. Place the scale on firm flooring (such as tile or wood) rather than carpet. Have the participant remove shoes and heavy clothing, such as sweaters. Have the participant stand with both feet in the center of the scale. Record the weight to the nearest decimal fraction (for example, 25.1 kilograms). Page 7 of 20 | Sports Authority of India Khelo India Fitness Assessment - Administration Manual Plate Tapping Test What does it measure: Tests speed and coordination of limb movement How to Perform: Infrastructure/Equipment Required: Table (adjustable height), 2 yellow discs If possible, the table height should be adjusted (20cm diameter), rectangle (30 x 20 cm), so that the subject is standing comfortably in stopwatch front of the discs. The two yellow discs are placed with their centers 60 cm apart on the Scoring: table. The rectangle is placed equidistant The time taken to complete 25 cycles is between both discs. recorded The non-preferred hand is placed on the rectangle. The subject moves the preferred
hand back and forth between the discs over the hand in the middle as quickly as possible. This action is repeated for 25 full cycles (50 taps). Administrative Suggestion: Participants should be encouraged to stand in a balanced posture, feet apart to shoulder width. Results are usually better if the participant can maintain constant pace during most of the run. Page 8 of 20 | Sports Authority of India Khelo India Fitness Assessment - Administration Manual Flamingo Balance Test What does it measure: Ability to balance successfully on a single leg. This single leg balance test assesses the strength of the leg, pelvic, and trunk muscle as well as Static balance. How to Perform: Stand on the beam. Keep balance by holding the instructor's hand (if required to start). While balancing on the preferred leg, the free leg is flexed at the knee and the foot of this leg held close to the buttocks. Start the watch as the instructor lets go of the participant/subject. Infrastructure/Equipment Required: Non Slippery even surface, Stopwatch, can be done on just standing on beam. Scoring: The total number of falls or loss of balance in 60 seconds of balancing is recorded. If there are more than 15 falls in the first 30 seconds, the test is terminated. Pause the stopwatch each time the subject loses balance (either by falling off the beam
or letting goes of the foot being held). Resume over, again timing until they lose balance. Count the number of falls in 60 seconds of balancing. If there are more than 15 falls in the first 30 seconds, the test is terminated. Administrative Suggestion: Participants should be encouraged to eyes focused on stationary object straight ahead. Page 9 of 20 | Sports Authority of India Khelo India Fitness Assessment - Administration Manual Partial Curl Up (30 seconds) What does it measure: The curl up test measures abdominal muscular strength and endurance of the abdominals and hip-Flexors, important in back support and core stability. How to Perform: The subject lies on a cushioned, flat, clean surface with knees flexed, usually at 90 degrees, with hands straight on the sides (palms facing downwards) closer to the ground, parallel to the body. The subject raises the trunk in a smooth motion, keeping the arms in position, curling up the desired amount (at least 6 inches above/along the ground towards the parallel strip). Infrastructure/Equipment Required: Flat clean cushioned surface with two parallel strips (6 inches apart), Stopwatch, Recording sheets, Pen Scoring: Record the maximum number of Curl ups in a certain time period 30 seconds.
The trunk is lowered back to the floor so that the shoulder blades or upper back touch the floor. Administrative Suggestion: Participants should be encouraged to keep normal breathing rate. Results are usually better if the participant can maintain constant pace during the activity. Page 10 of 20 | Sports Authority of India Khelo India Fitness Assessment - Administration Manual Push Ups (Boys)/Modified Push Ups What does it measure: (Girls) Upper body strength endurance, and trunk stability. How to Perform: A standard push up begins with the hands and toes touching the floor, the body and legs in a straight line, feet slightly apart, the arms at shoulder width apart, extended and at a right angles to the body. Keeping the back and knees straight, the subject lowers the body to a predetermined point, to touch some other object, or until there is a 90-degree angle at the elbows, then returns back to the starting position with the arms extended. Infrastructure/Equipment Required: Flat clean cushioned surface/Gym mat Scoring: Record the number of correctly completed push-ups. This action is repeated, and test continues until exhaustion, or until they can do no more in
rhythm or have reached the target number of push-ups. For Girls: push-up technique is with the knees resting on the ground. Administrative Suggestion: Participants should be encouraged to emphasis to keep the back straight. Results are usually better if the participant can maintain constant pace during the activity. Page 11 of 20 | Sports Authority of India Khelo India Fitness Assessment - Administration Manual Sit and What does it measure: Reach Common measure of flexibility, and specifically measures the flexibility of the lower back and hamstring muscles. This test is important as because tightness in this area is implicated in lumbar lordosis, forward pelvic tilt and lower back pain How to Perform: This test involves sitting on the floor with legs stretched out straight ahead. Shoes should be removed. The soles of the feet are placed flat against the Sit and Reach box. Both knees should be locked and pressed flat to the floor - the tester may assist by holding them down. Infrastructure/Equipment Required: Sit and Reach box with the following dimensions: 12" x 12" (sides) 12" x 10" (front and back) 12" x 21" (top) Inscribe the top panel with centimeter/mm gradations. It is crucial that the vertical plane against which the subject's feet will be placed is exactly at the 23 cm mark. Flat clean cushioned surface/Gym Mats
With the palms facing downwards, and the hands on top of each other, the subject reaches forward along the measuring line as Scoring: The score is recorded (difference between far as possible. initial position and final position), in cm and Ensure that the hands remain at the same mm, as the distance reached by the hand. level, not one reaching further forward than the other. After some practice reaches, the subject reaches out and holds that position for at one-two seconds while the distance is recorded. Make sure there are no jerky movements. Administrative Suggestion: Proper warm-up and static stretching of the lower back and posterior thighs is very important for this test. A partner placing his/her hands lightly across knees can prevent the flexing of knees. Keep the hands over each other (fish pose). Besides in order to prevent the test apparatus from sliding away from the participants during the test, it should be placed against a wall or a similar immovable object. The test trial is repeated if: (i) The hands reach out unevenly or (ii) The knees are flexed at the time of doing the test.

Time taken for completion (Run or Walk) in min, sec, mm Walking is permitted but the objective is to cover the distance in the shortest possible time. Administrative Suggestion: Participants should be encouraged to practice running with emphasis placed on the concept of pace. Results are usually better if the participant can maintain constant pace during most of the run and perhaps using a strong closing effort. Page 13 of 20 | Sports Authority of India Khelo India Fitness Assessment - Administration Manual 50 M Dash (Standing Start) What does it measure: Determines acceleration and speed How to Perform: A thorough warm up should be given, including some practice starts and accelerations. Infrastructure/Equipment Required: Measuring tape or marked track, stopwatch, cone markers, flat and clear surface of at least 60 meters. Start from a stationary position, with one foot Scoring: in front of the other. The front foot must be Time taken for completion on or behind the starting line. This starting position should be static (dead start).
The tester should provide hints for maximizing speed (such as keeping low, driving hard with the arms and legs) and encouraged to continue running hard through the finish line. Administrative Suggestion: Participants should be encouraged to practice running with emphasis placed on the concept of pace. Results are usually better if the participant can maintain constant pace during most of the run and perhaps using a strong closing effort. Page 14 of 20 | Sports Authority of India Khelo India Fitness Assessment - Administration Manual Dos and Donts Preparing for Assessments To participate in Physical Fitness Assessments, some good preparation can go a long way. 1. It is recommended that the assessments are done twice a year (for Term I and Term II in each academic year). The minimum gap between tests should be 4 months. 2. Find out what is required. Most fitness tests will require a combination of evaluations to assess speed, endurance/stamina, strength, flexibility, and body composition. Read about these tests and plan for the same. 3. Determine the current abilities. Pretend you are taking their test today and perform each exercise. Note how close they came to the goal and how much further they need to go. 4. Calculate the time you have to prepare. You need adequate time to prepare for the test. 5. Participants must pace themselves. Maintaining a constant tempo is crucial for completing long and repetitive exercises, like Curl-ups, Push-ups and 600 mt runs. If you work too fast at the beginning of the exercise, you may become fatigued quickly. It is more effective to maintain a steady pace throughout. 6. Participants should be encouraged to practice for few weeks with emphasis placed on the concept of pace. Results are usually better if the participant can maintain consistency in performance during this practice period. Before a Test Get appropriate clothing 7. Participant to wear comfortable clothes with sports shoes. a. In case shoes are not available, he/she can run bare-feet. He/she needs to take
precaution so that the foot doesnt get hurt with pointed objects in the playing fields. b. Avoid leather shoes. 8. Get clothes that are comfortable to wear and run or bend (eg. T-shirt and comfortable fitting trousers/half pants) 9. Wearing socks that will keep the feet dry. Safety Measures 10. If you plan to do for a group of people, decide Date/Time when you want to do the test. 11. Ensure that the play field is flat and clear from stones/pointed objects that may injure children 12. Ensure that the equipment required for the tests are available at the place where you want to do the tests 13.
