The physical fitness test (PFT) for students in
California schools is the FITNESSGRAM®. The main goal of the test is to
help students in starting life-long habits of regular physical activity.
Students in grades five, seven, and nine take the fitness test. The
test has six parts that show a level of fitness that offer a degree of
defense against diseases that come from inactivity. The test results can
be used by students, teachers, and parents.
For more information about the PFT, contact your local school district.
The PFT - CalEdFacts page provides a more detailed overview of the test.

that are directly involved with, or have an interest in, the PFT.
