Motor Performance Norms for Georgia Elementary School Children.
Harris, I. David, Comp.; And Others
In a study of 2,546 Georgia children, researchers have established state norms for 8 measures of physical fitness at 3 grade levels. Motor test score percentile rankings for boys and girls in the second, fourth, and sixth grades are given (in 22 tables) for the following tests: (1) jump and reach; (2) sit ups; (3) shape-o-ball (measuring shape recognition, perceptual match, and hand-eye coordination); (4) zig zag run; (5) flexed arm hang; (6) soccer wall volley; (7) sit and reach; and (8) 600 yard walk-run. Percentile norms are also given for tests measuring self concept, reading, and mathematics. Appended are the test battery and rotation, test instructions, and references. (JD)
