DA Form 705, which is also known as an Army Physical Fitness Test Scorecard, is used to keep a record of a soldier's physical fitness test scores by the Department of the Army in the United States.
These tests are conducted at various points throughout a soldier's career in order to make sure they are physically able to perform their job.
The form should list the date of the test as well as the current physical stats of the person taking it, including height, age, weight, and body fat.
The form will then have areas to record the results of each test, including the 2 mile run, push-ups, and sit-ups exams. There is also an option to record the results of an alternative aerobic exam.
Soldiers name, unit and gender must be filled in the top box of the DA 705. If the soldier needs to take more than four times test in his or her military career, the same information must be specified on each subsequent page.
Each page of the DA Form 705 is divided into four boxes and each boxes takes up one quarter of the page for as many as four separate tests per page. The top box of each of the sections is labeled as Test One, Test Two, Test Three and Test Four.
Under each Test One, Two, Three and Four, there are three boxes which must be filled in with the date of the test, the soldier's age and military grade at the time of that test. Under these three boxes, there are more boxes that need to be filled in with soldier's weight, height, body fat composition and whether the results of the test were "GO" or "NO-GO".
The boxes at the next level down on the form record the results for sit-ups, pushups and the 2-mile run. There is also room for the recording of a score on an Alternate Aerobic Event. Under that, the Raw Score is recorded to measured against a comprehensive standards chart that is part of the DA 705.
The standards chart will state a number of pushups, a number of sit-ups, or a time for the two-mile run. It will indicate a score for an individual who achieves at a certain level, based on his or her age and gender.
The officer administering the test would sign on the bottom of the DA 705 and offer any comments relevant to the soldier's performance. Both the officer administering the test and the soldier taking it must keep copies of the completed DA 705.
The standards enumerated in the DA 705 form have garnered interest in the civilian physical fitness community. Online calculators are available for everyone, where you can enter you age, gender, and various scores on times exercises, to determine if you meet the standards the army sets for your gender and for your age group.
