(ii) Assessment by an External Examiner: 50 Marks

  1.  Work to be assessed by Teacher (s)

  1. Work to be assessed by the External Examiner 

The assessment of the work of the candidates by the External Examiner will be in two parts:

A. Physical efficiency tests.

B. Specialization tests.

A. Physical Efficiency Tests

The following tests to evaluate the physical fitness of candidates will be organized and conducted in the presence of the External Examiner. Tests should be

carried out over the duration of two days.

(a) Test 1

50 metre run. Standing start. Timings are to be taken to the nearest tenth of a second (weather should be relatively windless without extremes of temperature).

(b) Test 2

Standing long jump. A flat non-slip surface should be used. The candidates should stand with their toes just behind the take-off line and jump when ready. After making a preliminary swing with the arms, the candidate swings them forward vigorously, springing with both feet simultaneously to land as far forward as possible. Distance jumped, to be measured in centimeters.

(c) Test 3

Distance run - 1000 meters run for boys, 600 meters run for girls. Time to be taken to the nearest second.

(d) Test 4

(i) Floor push-ups for boys 

The boys take a front leaning position with the body supported on hands and balls of feet; the arms are straight and at right angle to the body. He then dips or lowers the body so that the chest nearly touches the floor, he then pushes back to the starting position by straightening the arms and repeats the procedures as many times as possible. The arms must be completely extended with each push-up; the body must be held straight throughout. Scoring consists of the number of correct push-ups.

(ii) Push-ups for girls 

This is executed from a stall bar bench or a stool 32cm high by 50 cm long and 35 cm wide. It should be placed on the floor about 15 cm from a wall so that the subjects will not take a position too far forward. The girl should grasp the outer edges of the bench, or stool, at the nearest corners and assume the front-leaning rest position, 228 with the balls of her feet on the floor and with her body and arms forming a right angle. She should then lower her body so that the upper chest touches the near edge of the bench or stool, then raise it to a straight arm position as many times as possible. The girl's body should be held straight throughout. If the body sways or arches, if the subject does not go completely down or does not push completely up, half credit is given (up to 4 half credits).

(e) Test 5

Shuttle run. A flat course of 10 meters is required to be measured between two parallel baselines. Behind each baseline, a semicircle 50 cm radius with center on the baseline is required to be marked. Two wooden blocks (10 cm x 5 cm x 5 cm) are to be placed in the far semicircle. The candidate stands with feet behind the baseline, and on a signal, runs to the far line and picks up one block which the candidate places in the starting semicircle when he/she returns. Then turning without a rest, they run back to retrieve the second block and carry it back across the finish line.

(f) Test 6

30-second sit-ups. The candidate lies with his/her back on a mat or flat surface, feet about 30 cm apart and knees flexed at right angles. The candidate's hands with fingers interlocked are placed behind the head. A partner holds the candidate's feet in contact with the mat or floor. On

the signal "Go" the candidate sits up to touch the knees with his/her elbows. Without pause, he/she returns to his/her starting position and immediately sits up again. The number of sit-ups completed in 30 seconds is to be counted.
