Connecticut Physical Fitness Assessment (CPFA)
The CSDE has issued some clarifying policy regarding administering the Connecticut Physical Fitness Assessment (CPFA) to students who do not identify as male or female (i.e., non-binary) and choose not to be evaluated on either of the gender-based standards of the CPFA. This policy (See page 14 of CPFA Test Administration Manual) was developed in close consultation with an advisory group of health and physical education staff from several districts across the state, and the CSDE’s Title IX office. It allows districts to use a more personalized, goal-based approach to measuring progress on the CPFA without having to place the student into a fitness achievement level. Moreover, effective 2022-23, the CSDE will begin collecting individual student assessment results for the CPFA. This will enable the CSDE to recognize, for accountability purposes, the participation of non-binary students who are not formally rated on the CPFA.
