With the ability to run his homeroom class however he desires, Shota Aizawa always evaluates the abilities of his students on their first day instead of going through a normal orientation. He has the students compete in eight physical tests using their Quirks to gauge their potential. Then he ranks their scores from best to worst.
Shota threatens to expel the student who comes in last place because they have no potential. There are a few exceptions: According to All Might, Shota has expelled an entire class after being disappointed with their results. In Izuku Midoriya's case, even though Izuku came in last in Class 1-A's fitness tests, he was not expelled.
The students must run fifty meters straight while using their Quirks to improve their mobility. Their completion times are recorded. Known participants and results are as follows:
|Zero Gravity||7.15 seconds|
|Navel Laser||5.51 seconds|
|Acid||Unknown (Faster than Yuga Aoyama)|
The students grasp a hand-held device that reads the force their grip exhibits in kilograms. Known participants and results are as follows:
Standing Long Jump
The students use their Quirks to clear a sandbox designed for a standing long jump. Their distance is recorded. Known participants and results are as follows:
|Navel Laser||Cleared sandbox|
|N/A||Landed within sandbox|
Repeated Side Steps
The students move between three lines by sidestepping from one to the other. Only Minoru Mineta was shown to participate in this test. He used his Quirk to bounce himself quickly between the lines.
The students were required to throw a ball as far as they could using their Quirks. Izuku originally decided to use his Quirk through his whole arm, even though previous experience had shown it would have incapacitated him for the rest of the tests, which is why he hadn't used his Quirk in the tests before. He hoped to do well enough to bring himself out of what he knew to be last place so that the rest of the tests would not matter. His initial attempt failed, as Shota used his Erasure Quirk to shut off Izuku's Quirk. Shota warned that incapacitating himself for a Quirk that could only be used once was useless, and not a promising start for a hero career. Izuku took Shota's criticisms to heart, and when Shota released him, he instead only used his Quirk in the tip of his finger, giving the ball an extra boost, but not incapacitating him.
|One For All||705.3 meters|

The students also participated in a distance run, seated toe-touch, and sit ups. Participants and results were never revealed.
