Sean puts a few middle school students from Central Middle School in Dover to the test with the Pacer Test.
It’s designed to measure a persons cardiovascular fitness. The students he runs with in the test are some of the best in the area.
Dennis Meija is the American world record holder with the pacer test. Christian and Ida also hold records with the pacer test.
Bill Arditio, health and physical education instructor, tells Sean that the pacer test is an assessment of cardiovascular endurance for the state. Everyone is required to take the test from fourth grade to twelfth grade.
The students and Sean start the pacer test and we see how many they can do. Dennis holds a record for 247 laps. The students put Sean to shame. See how he does below.
