Abstract: The authors compared and analyzed national swimming test standards and implementation methods, found the followings problems: in regions all over China, swimming test items were different, swimming pool sizes were dif-ferent, boy and girl students’ score differences were irrational, examination standard differences were great, which are lacking in preciseness and scientificity. By referring to various domestic and foreign swimming standards as well as middle and long distance runners and Chinese track and field athletes ranking standards, and by comprehensively bal-ancing various factors, the authors put forward the following suggestions: set the examination distance to 100m; set boy and girl students’ full scores to 100s and 114s respectively; set the difference between the times taken by boy and girl students to swim in a long course pool and in a short course pool to 3s; for boy and girl students, set the time difference between the former score and the later score to 5s; establish swimming test standards for disabled students.
