The fifth section of the Henderson and Sugden's Movement ABC Checklist is part of the general Checklist that accompanies The Movement ABC Battery. The authors maintain that the analysis of this section must be mainly qualitative instead of quantitative. The main objective of this study was to employ a quantitative analysis of this behavioural checklist with a Spanish sample of 1,128 school children that were assessed by their physical education teachers. Teachers applied this Behavioural Section in its Spanish version to children and the analysis of the data showed an orthogonal two-factor solution with high internal consistency. These factors were labeled: Impulsiveness and Passiveness. This quantitative version was applied in studies about clumsiness and demonstrated that this checklist is a user-friendly instrument for physical education children. (Contains 7 tables and 2 figures.)
