  • 7. direct measures
    • Students were 55% more active during a HOPSports supported class than during traditional P.E. (independently supported by observation)

  • Physical Education by Gender
    In traditional P.E., boys are significantly more active than girls
    When Be Active HOPS is introduced, all students significantly increased MVPA
    Be Active HOPS had a greater effect on girls, bringing them up to the same level as boys
  • 9. Physical Education by B.M.I.
    MVPA
    BMI was measured for each student, pacing them in “healthy weight,” “overweight,” or “obese”
    In traditional P.E., healthy weight students are by far the most active
    When Be Active HOPS was introduced, overweight and obese students were more active than the healthy weight students were in traditional P.E.
  • 10. Physical Education by B.M.I.
  • 11. instructor feedback
    • All teachers reported high usability with the technology system
    • 12. Though 52% of these instructors rarely or never used technology in P.E., there was a significant increase in confidence after using HOPS in the classroom
    • 13. All teachers were satisfied with technical support
