The aim of the present study was designed to standardize physical fitness test for Physical Education entrance in Nagpur District Physical Education Colleges. To achieve the purpose, the investigator formed the research method in three phases, namely, Pilot Study Phase, Testing Phase for Validity and Reliability and Testing Phase for Objectivity. During the Testing Phase for Reliability and Validity of tests standardized, the researcher found the reliability of the tests through test – retest (intra class) methods. Reliability of the constructed tests were also done by inter- rater (outside expert) with the 60 subjects, 30 in the age group of 18 to 21 and 30 in the age group of 22 to 25 were selected for this purpose. To ascertain the validity (criterion related and construct related) the athletic ability was determined by three experts when the selected subjects were in actual competitions. The obtained athletic ability was related with the skill scores of the subjects to determine criterion related validity. To determine the construct related validity the athletic ability and physical fitness scores of the subjects in the age group of 18 to 21 and in the age group of 21.1 to 25 were found and related so that to find the validity of the tests for both the age groups. To find out the objectivity of the tests, the investigator administered the tests for 300 subjects. Based on the scores, hull scales were computed and the subjects were classified and thereby the objectivity of the skill tests could be proved. This study would help the Physical Education directors, Physical Education teachers and coaches in selecting the team and evaluate performance.
