Abstract:It was found that teachers only had a slightly positive attitude toward fitness tests. The cognitive and affective domains were equally and strongly correlated to the overall attitude (r = 0.97). Most teachers (83%) used fitness tests in the last two years. The most frequently used fitness test was The President's Challenge (40.3%). No common purposes, problems, or reasons for using or not using fitness tests were identified. No significant difference was found in use of fitness tests between teachers who graduated in the last five years and those who graduated in earlier years. The results of discriminant function analysis suggested that teachers' overall attitudes, types of schools, and the grade levels were the key factors to predict teachers' use of fitness tests.
