-Based on the statewide research from the pilot test, CDE found that when teachers used the practice tests with students as both a simulation of the test environment and actual practice, there was less anxiety around administration both from students and teachers. Moreover, with the use of the practice/training tests, students will gain familiarity with the universal tools available to them during test administration such as built in calculators, Zoom in and out, readily available test instructions, note making, highlighting, and etc.

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. All students in the 5th, 7th, and 9th grade PE courses 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.
