It adds greatly to the interest in training if measurements of the body are taken and tests in physical ability carried out. It enables a Scout to see for himself the extent of his progress and judge for himself the value of the training. It is a simple matter to carry out tests in agility, strength, dexterity; tests should be done before and after a course of training. They should be simple and practical for an individual to carry out on his own and to record the results for himself.
