ORIGINAL RESEARCH
Putting Physical Activity Where It Fits in the School Day: Preliminary Results of the ABC (Activity Bursts in the Classroom) for Fitness Program

This flow chart depicts a series of circles and boxes that describes the response rates for the ABC for Fitness Program. The first box is arranged horizontally and says, “13 Elementary Schools: Independence School District.” Two ovals are beneath this box and are beside each other. A line connects the first box to 4 boxes. The 2 ovals are directly beneath the first box and are divided by the line. The first oval reads, “Intervention schools (n = 3) (655 Students Enrolled in the Study). The second oval says, “Control Schools (N = 2), (559 Students Enrolled in the Study). Beneath the ovals are 2 boxes arranged horizontally.

Directly beneath the first oval is a box. The first box says, “Baseline Completed Assessments, Anthropometric (n = 655); Physical Fitness Assessment (n = 611), Medication Logs (n = 655); Physical Activity Attitudes (n = 420), Classroom Behavior (n = 606) MAP Academic (n = 197); Progress Report Academic (n = 460).”

To the right of the first box, the second box says, “Baseline Completed Assessments, Anthropometric (n = 559); Physical Fitness Assessment (n = 505), Medication Logs (n = 559); Physical Activity Attitudes (n = 370), Classroom Behavior (n = 534), MAP Academic (n = 155); Progress Report Academic (n = 386).”  

Beneath the first box is a third box, which is connected to the first box by a line. The third box says, “Follow Up Completed Assessments, Anthropometric (n = 603); Physical Fitness Assessment (n = 603), Medication Logs (n = 655); Physical Activity Attitudes (n = 179), Classroom Behavior (n = 606), MAP Academic (n = 197); Progress Report Academic (n = 460).”

The fourth box is to the right of the third box; a line connects it to the second box. The fourth box reads, “Follow Up Completed Assessments Anthropometric (n = 508); Physical Fitness Assessment (n = 503), Medical Logs (n = 559); Physical Activity Attitudes (n = 213), Classroom Behavior (n = 534), MAP Academic (n = 155); Progress Report Academic (n = 386).”
