Assessment team (A-team) is an interdisciplinary research team of Cal Poly students who are specially trained to conduct physical health and fitness assessments both on Cal Poly’s campus and within the San Luis Obispo County. A-team’s main focus is centered on promoting health education and outreach in the community, providing students the opportunity to collaborate with local businesses and representatives, giving them invaluable professional preparation.
These assessments include, but are not limited to: height, weight, body mass index (BMI), body composition, waist circumference, waist to hip ratio, muscular endurance, and blood pressure. As students interested in research and public health initiatives, A-team aims to provide parallel assessments and presentations, by not simply collecting biometric data, but providing participants with up to date information on clinical interpretations and healthy lifestyle options.
A-team is a certified Service Learning Class through Student Life and Leadership at Cal Poly and may be taken for Cal Poly course credit. The KINE 290 class provides students the opportunity to gain valuable research experience, as well as presentation skills, by allowing for the development of a project or paper, either independently or in collaboration with others specific to individual interests and professional preparation. The A-team experience integrates theoretical content and applied skills from class into community activities and research projects.
