Smoll, Frandk L.; Schutz, Robert W.
Developmental Psychology, v26 n3 p360-69 May 1990
When 2,142 students in Grades 3, 7, and 11 were tested on 6 motor tasks, performance decrements resulting from fatness were found for boys and girls equally and constantly across the grades. Boys exhibited progressively greater performance superiority across grades. However, for specific tasks, an age-related decrease was found in degree to which anthropometric variables contributed to gender differences. (RH)
