14-1 Methods of Evaluation

Methods of Evaluation
Commanders are responsible for ensuring that their soldiers are physically fit (AR 350- 15). There are several ways they can assess fitness including the following

– Testing. This is an efficient way to evaluate both the individual’s and the unit’s physical performance levels.
– Inspection. This evaluates training procedures and indicates the soundness of the unit’s physical fitness program.
– Observation. This is an ongoing way to review training but is not as reliable as testing as an indicator of the unit’s level of fitness.
– Medical examination. This detects individual disabilities, health-related problems, and physical problems.
