PASS is a free, user-friendly, web-based, 8-item tool that assesses and increases awareness of evidence-based physical activity practices at elementary schools.
PASS increases awareness of evidence-based PA practices (e.g., PE, recess, activity breaks, active transport). We reviewed evidence-based literature, created PASS, revised it on reviews of teachers and administrators, and developed an on-line version.
Individuals (especially parents, teachers, school administrators, and school board members) interested in learning about and assessing physical activity opportunities at their local elementary school are invited to use PASS. Completing PASS takes about 5 minutes.
Upon completing each of the 8 items, respondents receive a numerical score with feedback and evidence-based recommendations on how the school can improve. After the last question, an overall school score is provided along with a corresponding grade (A-F). Respondents can compare their school score with other schools that are within and outside their state and can gain access relevant evidence-based information online.
