SOFIT (System for Observing Fitness Instruction Time) is a comprehensive tool for assessing physical education (PE) classes by providing for the simultaneous collection of data on student activity levels, the lesson context, and teacher behavior. Physical activity engagement is one of the main health-related goals of physical education and it is needed in order for students to become physically fit and physically skilled. Participation in moderate-to-vigorous physical activity (MVPA) during class is highly dependent upon how PE subject matter is delivered (i.e., lesson context) and the instructor delivering it (i.e., teacher behavior).
SOFIT has been validated in several ways and studies have shown that it can be used reliably in diverse instructional settings. It has been frequently used as direct observation measurement system to provide both practitioners and researchers with both objective baseline and intervention data.
