CPT Lewis January 8th, on 3: They should also ensure the following: Once the profile is lifted, the soldier must be given twice the time of the profile but not more than 90 days to train for the APFT. Prior to Maythe scoring algorithm also included an extended scale, by which soldiers could earn more than points in an event by performing better than the point standard.
Event supervisor, scorers, and a demonstrator for each event.

However, use of such a scale is specifically forbidden in the current Army Field Manual. Performance on the APFT is strongly linked to the soldier’s fitness level and his ability to do fitness-related tasks.
I personally like having access to FM Anything that gives a soldier an unfair advantage is not permitted during the APFT.
The event supervisor cannot be ready f, begin.
If this occurs, your performance will be terminated. BDUs may be worn but may be a hindrance on some events. On the command ‘go,’ begin raising your upper body forward to, or beyond, the vertical position.
Soldiers requiring make-up testing will be scheduled in accordance with the unit Standard Operating Procedures.
Tape Test Standards It should apf the following: If a soldier fails an event or finds it difficult to perform, the scorer should write down the reasons and other pertinent information in the comment block.
Facilities This event uses the same course as the 2-mile run. His score would be calculated as follows: Soldiers who score or above on the APFT, with a minimum score of 90 in each event, are awarded the Physical Fitness Badgewhich can be worn on the physical training uniform of 21–20 soldiers.
When the soldier completes the event, the scorer records the number of correctly performed repetitions, initials the scorecard, and returns it to the soldier.
At the end of the apf, they record each soldier’s time on the score-card in the 2-mile-run block, initial the appropriate block, and note in the comment block that the time is for a 6. There are no alternate events for the push-up or sit-up.

At this time, the scorers for the 2-mile run also convert the raw scores for the push-up and sit-up events by using the scoring standards on the back side of the scorecard. When the soldier comes to the vertical position, the scorer must be sure that the base of the soldier’s neck is above or apct the base of the spine.
I did want to let you know that TC Soldiers who have failed an APFT are often put into a “remedial program” first, which includes additional physical training. Scorers assign numbers to the soldiers in their groups and record each soldier’s number on the appropriate scorecard.
When necessary or expedient, a quarter-mile running track can “be used. This simplifies the recording of finish times when large groups of soldiers are simultaneously tested. Mission requirements often prevent the even spacing of record tests.
The scorer for each group assigns a number to each soldier in the group.
Under previous versions, in order for a soldier to earn a score of overhe or she must have obtained points in each event, meaning that a soldier could not begin to use the extended scale for any one event until points were reached in all three events.
They must be able to measure time in both minutes and seconds. If you stop and rest in the down starting position, the event will be terminated.
