A new tab will open in your browser.
❗ Note: If you leave the 3rd Party page in Otus, the PFT tab will close.
Entry: Where the data is entered.
Participation: Where you can easily see the levels of performance of each student for each category.
State Extract (only available in the main admin account): Where you can download a .txt file of the data.
❗ For Admin: In order to see data, you must begin typing in the name of a Physical Education teacher into the search field. Select their name and choose from their Physical Education classes in the dropdown menu that appears to the right. See below:
In this tab, student data can be entered for the various categories:
✅ Note: In each category, you are able to filter your view to see all students, only students that do not have data (incomplete), or only students that do have data (complete). You can also search for a specific student. See below:
❗ A category is considered complete for a student when at least one full exercise has been entered for that category.
Height/Weight (and start date)
Upper Body Strength
Since some of the categories have multiple exercises, this table will display the "best" score for each of the categories.
➡️ For example, Aerobic Capacity has the One-Mile Run, the PACER, and the Walk Test. If the PACER test is displayed here, that would indicate the student's best score in the Aerobic Capacity category was for the PACER test.
💡 Tip from the Otus Team: To learn more about how the scores are calculated for each exercise, check out this resource.
This is where you can enter exemptions for students on particular exercises.
