Preliminary Report on Reaction Time and Movement Time of Young Children.
Gober, Billy; Hill, Fred
Two hundred and fifty-six children between the ages of five and eight years were tested for reaction time and movement time on an electrical device which was constructed by the author. Since the primary purpose of this project was to gather base-line data on the reaction times and movement times of these particular children, no specific conclusions can be offered. The data tend to support the following general conclusions about the sample tested: (1) there was an improvement in both reaction time and movement time with advancing age; (2) there was no sex difference in reaction time or movement time; and (3) there was a high degree of relationship between reaction time and movement time.
