An Analysis of the Effects of Athletic Clothing on Performance of Students who are Participating in the FitnessGram® Test (Under the direction of Dr. Andrew Pustina) Carthage College, Spring 2018. The purpose of this study was to determine whether differences in FitnessGram® Test scores exist for students who dressed for gym class vs. students who did not dress for gym class. Test scores were collected from an urban school from the 2017-2018 school year. The data collected shows the results from three tests, the Pacer Test, Sit-Up Test and the Push-Up Test. This researcher used a quantitative study along with a longitudinal-observational experimental design. Participants in this study ranged from 18 to 19 years of age. The statistical analysis of the research questions resulted in the rejection of the null hypothesis in one area. The null hypothesis (1) was rejected when viewing the results of the Sit-Up test. The null hypothesis (2) was accepted for the Push-Up and Pacer Tests.
