pro’s and con’s of health-criterion-based fitness assessments and normative-based fitness assessments?
We'll be glad to critique your answers.
Health Criterion based fitness:
Pros: Less ambiguous, and closely tied with scored to improve health.
Cons: A “great” score could be up for interpretation, may not be an appropriate score for the individual
Pros: most fitness test are associated with “norm”, less subjective then criterion scores
Cons: Normative data might not accurately reflect the desired population, results reflect what the participants were able to do, not what they should do.
