Advantages and Disadvantages of Fitness Tests
Transcript of Advantages and Disadvantages of Fitness Tests
Cheap to run
Not much equipment required Disadvantages:
Lack of hi-tech timers make timing difficult Reliability:
The test can be performed many times as it takes just a few seconds to complete. This improves the reliability of results as an athlete's time can be 'averaged'. However, the reliability of the results may be poor if you do not have electronic sensor timers. One person holding a stopwatch between the starting gate and finishing line could easily make a timing mistake. Even if the resulting mistake is just a tenth of a second out, for such a short test, this could have a significant impact on the interpretation of the results. Validity:
By having a running start, the validity of the test improves as the test will measure just the speed of the athlete. Had we tested the athlete with a standing start, we would also be taking into consideration reaction time and acceleration which would have made the results less valid.
