A Comparison of the Motor Performances of Boys and Girls in the Lower Elementary Grades.
DiNucci, James M.
This study investigated the possible differences in motor performance between 6- to 9-year-old boys and girls. Forty-eight test items which measured muscular strength, muscular endurance, cardiovascular endurace, power, speed, agility, flexibility, and balance were administered to 238 boys and 183 girls. The t ratio indicated that boys were significantly superior to girls of corresponding age in areas of muscular strength, muscular endurance, cardiovascular endurance, power, speed, and agility. The girls were significantly superior in the areas of flexibility and static balance. No significant difference were noted in the scores for either groups on the tests for dynamic balance or modified pull-ups. (BRB)
