The purpose of this study was to develop an assessment standard table of physical activity and exercise among primary and junior high school students. We conducted oral surveys of thirty-five educational professionals recruited from four areas across Japan. Six researchers and educators discussed the results and created an assessment standard table by examining area-wise data from the national survey on physical fitness and motor ability and exercise habits. Ten items were adopted as the assessment standard, and the relative positioning among values representing the whole country and individual prefectures revealed the characteristics of the group. Based on this, an assessment standard table was developed to examine physical activity and exercise among students. Future studies must verify the effectiveness of the promotion of physical activity and exercise.
