Control for Reliability

In order to control for reliability, we performed our walk test during class outdoors on a standard 400m track. Students completed 4 full laps plus 10m to equal 1 mile. Prior to the assessment, students were provided with instruction on how to use appropriate pacing and how to maintain consistent motivation. One challenge we did encounter was some inclement weather. The Walk Test is a reliable test for assessing aerobic capacity.
