In February 1996, the State Board of Education (SBE) designated FITNESSGRAM® as the required physical fitness test that school districts must administer to all California students in Grades 5, 7, and 9. The FITNESSGRAM® will be administered in the Spring of each year, usually during the month of March. An additional fall administration is also offered to provide 10th through 12th grade students an opportunity to pass prior to scheduling courses for the following semester. The FITNESSGRAM® is a comprehensive, health-related physical fitness battery developed by The Cooper Institute. The primary goal of the FITNESSGRAM® is to assist students in establishing lifetime habits of regular physical activity
