Early Draft - Army’s New Fitness Test Standards PDF Print E-mail
A year-long field test of the Army’s new fitness test kicks off in October, and on Tuesday, a copy of the preliminary scoring system leaked online.

For now, Training and Doctrine Command is working on a gender- and age-neutral, 100-point system for each of the six events, with a 60-point minimum that will be familiar to anyone who’s ever taken the current Army Physical Fitness Test.

“The chart represents the standards we intend to use for the Army Combat Fitness Test during the Initial Operational Capability field testing phase," Lt. Col. Jeffrey Pray, a spokesman for the Center for Initial Military Training, told Army Times on Wednesday.

To start, standards will be divided by “heavy,” “significant" and “moderate” physical demand, similar to the Occupational Physical Assessment Test. One of the goals of the field study is to decide whether the final test will be scored according to military occupational specialty or unit type ― so, for example, an infantryman would fall into the “heavy” category, but so might everyone who serves in an infantry brigade combat team as well.
