Exercise Physiology & Anatomy Assessment


Duration: Maximum allowed time is 8 weeks to complete all 5 tests (26 weeks if taken with KA104)

CEU Credits: 48 CrossFit – To earn CEU Credits, both KA104 and KA104A must be completed (neither carry credit alone)

Course Author: Lon Kilgore, PhD

Presented by: Lon Kilgore, PhD

Methods of instruction: Timed online assessment


This assessment pack is comprised of five tests designed to assess if a student has acquired a functional understanding of the anatomical structures and physiological functions that affect, control, and adapt to exercise.

The tests cover the six outcomes of learning for KA104 – Exercise Physiology & Anatomy:

  1. describe the structure, organisation and function of the human body

  2. describe the structure and function of the skeletal system

  3. describe the structure and function of the muscular system

  4. describe the structure and function of the respiratory system

  5. describe the structure and function of the cardio vascular system

  6. describe the use and replenishment of energy substrates during exercise and recognise the by-products of energy use.


  1. Anatomy & Anthropometry

  2. Physiological Adaptation

  3. Bone & Joint Structure

  4. Muscle Structure & Function

  5. Muscle Contraction & Adaptation

  6. Bioenergetics & Metabolism

  7. Fact: Cells & Storage

  8. The Heart & Lungs

  9. Cardiopulmonary Function & Adaptation

  10. The Ankle & Foot

  12. The Hip

  13. The Axial Skeleton

  14. The Shoulder

  15. The Elbow

  16. The Wrist & Hand

  17. Endocrine Function & Adaptation

  18. Renal System & Fluid Balance

  19. Balance & Coordination


To receive CEU credit for this course, you must register and enrol in KA104 – Exercise Physiology & Anatomy. The course must be completed prior to or concurrently with this assessment pack.

In this assessment package, there are five (5) course tests comprised of multiple choice items for conceptual assessment, fill-in-the-blank for simple structure identification, matching for recognition of terms and definitions, and a single short (100-200 word) essay to evaluate student ability to synthesise information into a solution for a problem in fitness. Each course test is worth twenty percent (20%) of the possible unit weighting (100%). A minimum aggregate mark of 70% is required for the unit to count towards CEU credit. Each assessment is timed (1 hour), so there is no time available to look up materials in resources the student might have available. Student identity will be visually confirmed by video at the beginning of each testing session. Testing sessions are available twice per week per a pre-published schedule. If a student fails to attain a mark of 70% on any course test, they may retake a variant of the test once after a four week re-study period. It is highly recommended that you register for the assessment package as soon as you have made the decision to pursue CEU credit.
