The teaching is built around projects where students in groups plan, conduct and report on tests and measurements of physical fitness and performance.

Learning outcome


The candidate has:

  • knowledge of tests and measurements to evaluate physical fitness and performance in persons of different age, gender, fitness, and (dis)ability-level
  • knowledge about validity and reliability of different tests and measurements of physical fitness
  • knowledge to be able to interpret results on physical fitness related to health, training, and performance


The candidate can:

  • apply knowledge on physiology, anatomy, motor behaviour and some basic biomechanics to evaluate physical fitness in individuals and groups
  • plan and conduct tests and measurements to evaluate physical fitness
  • describe a physical fitness test instruction and protocol so that it can be executed and repeated by others
  • present physical fitness and performance results in a clear and informative manner

General competence

The candidate can:

  • present and report on own work both in oral and written form using the usual structure of a scientific work (IMRaD principle)
  • apply statistical knowledge and skills with the use of digital statistical Tools
