Motor Performance Age and Race Differences between Black and Caucasian Boys Six to Nine Years of Age.
DiNucci, James M.
This study was undertaken to compare the motor performance age and race differences between black and caucasian boys ages six to nine. One hundred and twenty subjects were administered 25 test items which measured (a) muscular strength, (b) muscular endurance, (c) cardio-respiratory endurance, (d) speed, (e) power, (f) agility, (g) balance, and (h) flexibility. Results indicated that relative to age level differences, the motor variables of power, balance, speed, and agility change significantly from year to year, while for measures of muscular strength and endurance the pattern of change is not as clear cut. Comparisons for cardiorespiratory endurance and flexibility did not produce significant differences. An analysis of the comparisons for race differences found black subjects superior to caucasian subjects on eight test items and caucasian subjects superior on two items. All other comparisons between races were not significant. (PB)
