PFT - Physical Fitness Testing - Update Pass/Fail (without the submission) to confirm with PFT requirement to notify Parents of results
Starting with the 21-22 results, PFT requires that parents receive their students' PFT - Physical Fitness Testing results. As such, can Aeries still provide a way to automatically update Pass/Fail without the submission information? (CDE PFT meeting 1/25/2023)
Per the PFT Webinar on January 25th, 2023. According to CDE the LEAs are not required to send the PFT pass/not pass results or "Healthy Fitness Zones" to the parents. They do, however, need to report the raw scores to the students. The CDE said it would be an LEA's local decision to report the PFT scores to the parents. (also see item 6 under PFT Data in the CDE's Physical Fitness FAQ page
The Fitnessgram uses proprietary calculations for the VO2max and the Healthy Fitness Zones. As such, Aeries cannot calculate the pass/not passed statuses for the individual test parts. LEA staff, however, are able to hand enter the pass/not pass test statuses for each student or run mass change queries on the PFT data to set the statuses.
In testing administrations prior to COVID the PFT data would be exported from Aeries and uploaded into the CDE PFT site where the pass/not pass statuses would be calculated by CDE. Once completed, CDE would then send a data file back to the districts with the pass/not pass statuses that LEAs would reimport into Aeries so that they could send reports to the parents. Since CDE is no longer collecting the raw score data they are not able to provide the pass/not pass results back to the LEAs.
