Health Assessments

Health Assessments

The I-CAN Fitness Index considers a combination of the three areas identified as the most important to the development of children’s health and fitness:

• Body Composition
• Cardio-fitness
• Power and coordination

When calculating the I-CAN Fitness Index, the cardio-fitness and average body composition results are weighted according to power and coordination to ensure that each of the three areas are of equal importance in the final calculations.

A higher Fitness Index is an indication of good results across the three health and fitness components, while a lower score is indicative of a poor result for overall health and fitness.

The below graphs illustrate the results across each fitness area, of all students, as a comparison between the first and second measures. Click here for a comprehensive analysis of results across all fitness areas (eg flexibility, strength, BMI etc), for all students in participating schools.
