The purpose of this study was to explore the relationship between the number of days per week a child participates in physical education class and physical fitness test scores among elementary students. A total of 1,122 boys and 1,129 girls from 31 elementary schools located in the Midwest region of the U.S. took part in the study. The results of the current study, in general, suggest that physical fitness levels of students enrolled in daily physical education programs are no better than the fitness levels of students enrolled in classes meeting less frequently.
