Introduction and the study aspect: Educational institutions are considered responsible for the preparation of a good citizens, who are considered the cornerstone for achieving the vision of His Royal Highness, Emir of Qatar, in Qatar’s vision of 2023. The success of the educational process depends on the complete preparation of an integrated citizen with respect to the physical, mental, psychological and social aspects. Lacking the necessary aspects of physical fitness affects how students respond to the requirements of life in general, which needs a great deal of physical fitness; and for functional systems to perform efficiently, they require a certain level of fitness to sustain the student’s activity. The use of assessment and evaluation in physical education is inevitable to identify the usefulness or effectiveness of taught programs; and to ensure achievement of the laid out purposes of these programs. Moreover, it helps in identifying the strengths and weaknesses of students and programs as it shows the value of instruction and progress. Through the assessment the real capacity of individuals, the achievement of set goals, the functionality of the laid out plan & its compatibility with the program can be identified. It further can determine the validity of the program and the efficiency of available material and human resources; along with demonstrating the extent of successes &/or failures & thus the weaknesses. Through the work of the researcher as a teacher of physical education in Al-Sailiya High School, a decrease in the level of physiological efficiency of many students was noticed during practical lessons. Early fatigue, increased respiratory rate / hyperventilation, and the inability to continue performing exercises for a relatively long period of time were observed, which guided the researcher to this idea to study and evaluate the physiological level of efficiency for high school students at Al-Sailiya Independent Secondary School for Boys. Objective: 1. identify the level of physiological efficiency of students at Al-Sailiya Independent Secondary School for Boys through some of the variables under study. 2. Study the differences in the level of physiological efficiency of the students at Al-Sailiya Independent Secondary School for Boys under study, according to the academic-level variable. Questions: 1. What is the physiological efficiency level of students at Al-Sailiya Independent Secondary School for Boys? 2. What is the nature of the physiological differences in the level of efficiency among students at the three school levels, at Al-Sailiya Independent Secondary School for Boys, according to the variable of the academic level? Methodology: The researcher used the descriptive approach to the appropriateness of the nature and objectives of the study. The research sample: 200 students from the three school levels who are enlisted at the Supreme Council of Higher Education for the academic year 2013-2014. Research tools: • The variables used in the research: (Age, weight, height, body mass index, the proportion of body components, maximum oxygen consumption, systolic blood pressure, diastolic blood pressure, the pulse rate at rest, and the pulse rate after the effort. • Devices and equipment used to measure the research variables: Stadiometer to measure height, medical scales to measure weight, sphygmomanometer to measure blood pressure, beep test to measure the maximum oxygen consumption, and data collection form. • Statistical treatments: The mean, standard deviation, median, torsion, and analysis of variance.
