Intensification of the Learning Process: Gross Motor Performance Scale. A Series of Reports Designed for Classroom Use.
Bucks County Public Schools, Doylestown, PA.
The Gross Motor Performance Screening Test was designed to aid the classroom teacher in obtaining specific information about the child's physical abilities. The test includes items which have been found to measure the various factors of physical fitness. It also includes items to measure skills important to the child and adult. Included also are items to measure the relative performance of different areas of the body, i.e., legs as compared to trunk and arms. From the results of the tests, it is possible to prepare a profile which shows the areas of strength and weakness in terms of physical performance. The Gross Motor Performance Screening Test is suggested as a rather comprehensive screening test of important physical abilities of elementary school children. Detailed descriptions of the exercises and equipment involved, as well as suggested remedial activities, are included. (See TM 001 363 for summary report of the project; for other related documents, see TM 001 364-374.) (Author/DG) Primary type of information provided by report: Results (Topical).
