Abstract

There Is A Grow. Trend of Decreasing Phys. Fitness among Adolescents, Which May Result Not only in Poorer Phys. Hlth. But Also in Poorer Acad. Achievement. Purpose: the Purpose of This Stud. Was to Investigate the Changes in Aerobic Fitness and Acad. Achievement in Reading and Math. during Middle Sch.. Methods: This Stud. Employed A Prospective, Longitudinal Cross-sectional Des.. Fifty-two Adolescents Were Followed from Sixth Grade Through Eighth Grade. in the Spring, Sixth-, Seventh-, and Eighth-grade Students Completed Progressive Aerobic Cardiovasc. Endurance Run Tests Measuring Aerobic Fitness. in Addition, Students Also Completed Illinois Std. Achievement Test Acad. Achievement Tests in Reading and Math.. Results: Changes in Aerobic Fitness between Sixth and Eighth Grade Were Positively Related to Changes in Acad. Achievement in Both Reading and Math. between Sixth and Eighth Grade. Conclusion: These Data Suggest That Changes in Aerobic Fitness May Modulate Changes in Acad. Achievement. These Findings Highlight the Importance of Phys. Activ. and Have Broad Relevance for Educ. Syst. and Policies.
