More about the study:

The purpose of this research project is to collect and compare student handgrip, BMI, and NWEA data in a two-year-long, exercise study. Particularly, the study is exploring the effects of exercise and handgrip strength and how that translates into standardized test scores. BMI (height and weight calculated) is a standard process of data collection for licensed physical education teachers. BMI data collection allows teachers to compare students’ pre- and post-test physical scores in order to determine if the teaching methods are improving student fitness levels. This project is specifically exploring whether handgrip strength impacts BMI data in a K12 school system.
