Baseline Data

Data Collection Period: September 29th – October 3rd, 2014

GPRA 1: 137/308 students (44%) met GPRA Performance Measure 1 

With permission, the Mansfield School District used sampling to collect data from students who will be served by the PEP grant.  Of 334 students randomly selected for measurement during the baseline sampling period, 1 was homebound, 1 moved during the collection period and 308 participated fully.  The remaining 24 students had significant absences that did not allow complete data collection.  Students wore EKHO One pedometers to collect data on daily physical activity.  Students in grades K-4 wore a pedometer for 4 days and reported the number of steps taken each day.  Students in grades 5-12 wore a pedometer for 7 days and reported the number of steps taken each day.  Additionally, 5th-12th grade students completed a 3 day physical activity recall on Wednesday of the collection period.  Students who had more than 9100 steps each day were documented as having at least 60 minutes of physical activity per day.  Students in grades 5-12 were also determined to have met the measure if they reported at least 60 minutes of moderate, hard or very hard physical activity for each of the three days of the 3 day PAR.  For the baseline data collection, 44% of students were determined to have met the standard of 60 minutes per day of physical activity.

GPRA 2: 73/328 students (22%) met GPRA Performance Measure 2

With permission, the Mansfield School District used sampling to collect data from students who will be served by the PEP grant.  The District collected data from fitness testing based on the Presidential Youth Fitness Test.  Data was collected on the following for each selected student: Height, weight, curl-ups with cadence, push-ups with cadence, sit and reach, pull-ups, flex arm hang and the mile run (distance adjusted as recommended for younger students).  This data was compared with the standards of the fitness gram according to the age and gender of the student.  For the baseline collection period, only 22% of students met the standard of healthy fitness zone.
