Fine Motor Performance Differences Between High and Low Social Status Children.
Edwards, Steven W.; Beveridge, Sandy K.
The purpose of this study was to determine if fine motor performance differences existed between high and low social status males and females. Sixty fourth, fifth, and sixth graders were studied. Both the high and low social status groups had equal numbers of males and females, and each group had the same number of fourth, fifth, and sixth graders. Each student was administered four tests that measured pyschomotor skills. It was concluded that the motor performance differences help support the contention that high social status groups may be superior to low social status groups on selected motor performance tasks.
