Individualization in education depends upon accurate appraisal of fundamental characteristics. A better understanding of physical abilities and potentials is essential to improvement of the physical education program. This means that the methods of science involving analysis and modification should be applied to the physical factors as well as to any other aspects of human behavior. A man is the sum total of his abilities. Abilities vary, both the inherent and the acquired. If it is important for a teacher or coach to judge ability and performance, then it is important to have adequate objective measurements pertaining to these factors.
