Research Performance data

Performance Data Project

USSA Malaysia is dedicated to making a difference in Malaysia's sport culture. We are currently engaged in several research projects and are always interested in ideas others might have.

Data collection for our Performance Data Project is ongoing. Students in various USSA Malaysia programs are administering the International Physical Performance Test (IPPT) to school children between the ages of 9 and 17 years. To date over 40,000 individual test records have been submitted. The test was developed by the United States Sports Academy.

You can follow the progress of this project as it happens. Below are some of the summary statistics. These numbers are generated as the data is added.

42792 test reports have been submitted so far.
