Terminology

Since realFIT Data provides API access to the entire realFIT platform, it is helpful to understand the underlying terminology.


Inside the realFIT Platform



Key Terms


Test

An individual measure of fitness within the realFIT test TEST LIBRARY. Each test may have multiple performance Standards Tables, but the procedures and measurement are the same. Each test has its own unique numeric TEST ID.

 

Category

Each individual test measures at least one standard realFIT fitness measurement category. Currently there are six categories. The total CATEGORY SCORE is the aggregate score across all the TESTS assigned to that category. The TEST WEIGHT may vary by each TEST SET.

 

Test Weights

The percentage weighting assigned to a particular TEST for a specific CATEGORY. The total weightings across all CATEGORIES for a specific TEST should always add to 100%.

 

Standards Table

The performance standards basis for a specific TEST. Every TEST will have at least one associated standards table. Each table will contain the performance RANGES so that a specific test result will be mapped to a RAW TEST SCORE.

 

Raw Test Score

The numeric performance rating for a particular test according to the associated STANDARDS TABLE. The actual raw score might not be provided to members, only the associated FEEDBACK for that score.

 

Category Score

The numeric performance rating (on a scale from 0-100) for a specific category. The category score is determined by the sum total of all the individual TESTS with CATEGORY WEIGHTS assigned to that category.

 

Overall Score

The numeric performance result of the overall score calculation.

 

Score Set

The complete set of TESTS chosen for the custom score calculation.

 

Category Weight

The percentage weighting assigned to a particular CATEGORY for a specific SCORE SET. The total weightings across all CATEGORIES for a specific SCORE SET should always add to 100%.

 

Test Library

The entire collection of realFIT TESTS available, including associated standards and score sets.

 

Feedback

The descriptive text associated with a particular RAW TEST SCORE, CATEGORY RATING or OVERALL SCORE.
