Abstract IntroductionEvery child should be provided the same quality education, including physical education (PE). In Hungary, within the curriculum of PE, it is compulsory to annually assess physical fitness level of each 5-12 grade student by using an online software-supported, health-related, criterion-referenced physical fitness battery, the Hungarian National Student Fitness Test (NETFIT®). To ensure equal opportunities, the Hungarian School Sport Federation started to adapt the NETFIT® to children with special education need (SEN) evidence based in 2016. Method1214 student with different kinds of SEN (mild intellectual disability (MID), other declared psychological developmental disorder (ODD), autism spectrum disorder, visual impairment, hearing impairment (HI), physical disability) were investigated along five different research objectives. Physical fitness was measured with NETFIT® and alternative tests. In the course of MID and ODD our aim was to compare the percentile distribution of the test results with those of typically developing children (TDC). In other fields validity and reliability researches were made. Results and conclusionThe NETFIT® and its IT system will be adapted for children with SEN. NETFIT® will be expanded with some alternative tests. The standards will be lower for MID, because in musculoskeletal tests they perform on average 20 percentile lower than TDC. In the case of blindness a new equation was developed to estimate peakVO2. NETFIT® handbook was supplemented. New tutorial videos are available for the alternative tests, which were subtitled in order to be accessible also for children with HI. The purpose of presentation is to introduce the newly developed battery.
