Rudd, J. R.; Barnett, L. M.; Farrow, D.; Berry, J.; Borkoles, E.; Polman, Remco – Measurement in Physical Education and Exercise Science, 2017
This study evaluated the effectiveness of an 8-week gymnastics curriculum on children's movement competence and their physical self-concept. There were 113 children (46% girls, 49% intervention) with a mean age of 9.4 years (SD = 1.8) that participated. Intervention children underwent 8 weeks of gymnastics and the comparison group continued with…

Smith, Wayne; Ovens, Alan; Philpot, Rod – Physical Education and Sport Pedagogy, 2021
Background: For many years, skill learning has been an important component of primary school physical education (PE) with most lessons focused on the teaching of fundamental movement skills (FMS) or sports techniques (Kirk 2010). Increasingly, the generalist primary school teachers who are responsible for delivering the PE curriculum are facing…

Lander, Natalie J.; Hanna, Lisa; Brown, Helen; Telford, Amanda; Morgan, Philip J.; Salmon, Jo; Barnett, Lisa M. – Journal of Teaching in Physical Education, 2017
Purpose: Competence in fundamental movement skills (FMSs) is positively associated with physical activity, fitness, and healthy weight status. However, adolescent girls exhibit very low levels of fundamental movement skill (FMS) proficiency. Method: In the current study, interviews were carried out with physical education teachers to investigate…

Telford, Rohan M.; Olive, Lisa S.; Keegan, Richard J.; Keegan, Sarah; Barnett, Lisa M.; Telford, Richard D. – Physical Education and Sport Pedagogy, 2021
Background: Health organisations such as the United Nations continue to place an expectation on school physical education (PE) programmes and wider school strategies to ensure students develop physical literacy and receive the well-established benefits of meeting physical activity guidelines. Barriers to meet this expectation such as lack of…

Bremer, Emily; Lloyd, Meghann – Autism: The International Journal of Research and Practice, 2021
This study examined whether adaptive behaviour, emotional and behavioural challenges, and social skills, respectively, moderated the effect of a movement skill intervention on movement skills among preschool aged children with autism spectrum disorder. Twenty-seven participants with autism spectrum disorder (N = 13 experimental) between 3 and 5…

Staples, Kerri L.; Reid, Greg – Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, 2010
Delays and deficits may both contribute to atypical development of movement skills by children with ASD. Fundamental movement skills of 25 children with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) (ages 9-12 years) were compared to three typically developing groups using the "Test of Gross Motor Development" ("TGMD-2"). The group matched on chronological age…

Slotte, Sari; Sääkslahti, Arja; Metsämuuronen, Jari; Rintala, Pauli – Early Child Development and Care, 2015
Objective: The main aim was to examine the association between fundamental movement skills (FMS) and objectively measured body composition using dual energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA). Methods: A study of 304 eight-year-old children in Finland. FMS were assessed with the "Test of gross motor development," 2nd ed. Total body fat…

Capio, C. M.; Poolton, J. M.; Sit, C. H. P.; Eguia, K. F.; Masters, R. S. W. – Journal of Intellectual Disability Research, 2013
Background: Children with intellectual disabilities (ID) have been found to have inferior motor proficiencies in fundamental movement skills (FMS). This study examined the effects of training the FMS of overhand throwing by manipulating the amount of practice errors. Methods: Participants included 39 children with ID aged 4-11 years who were…

van Aart, I.; Hartman, E.; Elferink-Gemser, M.; Mombarg, R.; Visscher, C. – Physical Education and Sport Pedagogy, 2017
Background: Many children aged 9-12 appear to have low levels of fundamental movement skills (FMS). Physical education (PE) is important because PE-teachers can teach children a variety of FMS and can influence PE-motivation. However, declined levels of PE-motivation are reported in the final grades of elementary school. Therefore, more insight in…

Baert, Helena; Madden, Matthew D.; Pratt, Erica – AERA Online Paper Repository, 2019
A mixed methods study was used to identify the effects of an online mastery-based learning resource on Teacher Candidates (TCs) in a Physical Education Teacher Education (PETE) Program. Online modules assisted TCs with developing knowledge of critical elements and motor development stages (Gallahue, Ozmun, & Goodway, 2012) associated with 16…

van Rossum, Tom; Foweather, Lawrence; Richardson, David; Hayes, Spencer J.; Morley, David – Measurement in Physical Education and Exercise Science, 2019
To inform the development of a teacher-oriented movement assessment tool, this study aimed to explore primary school teachers' perceptions of assessing fundamental movement skills (FMS) within Physical Education (PE) lessons. Thirty-nine primary school teachers of PE, located in the United Kingdom, participated in an individual or group in-depth…

Kirk, Megan A.; Rhodes, Ryan E. – Adapted Physical Activity Quarterly, 2011
Preschoolers with developmental delay (DD) are at risk for poor fundamental movement skills (FMS), but a paucity of early FMS interventions exist. The purpose of this review was to critically appraise the existing interventions to establish direction for future trials targeting preschoolers with DD. A total of 11 studies met the inclusion…

Capio, Catherine M.; Sit, Cindy H. P.; Abernethy, Bruce; Masters, Rich S. W. – Research in Developmental Disabilities: A Multidisciplinary Journal, 2012
Fundamental movement skills (FMS) proficiency is believed to influence children's physical activity (PA), with those more proficient tending to be more active. Children with cerebral palsy (CP), who represent the largest diagnostic group treated in pediatric rehabilitation, have been found to be less active than typically developing children. This…

Jaakkola, Timo; Washington, Tracy – Physical Education and Sport Pedagogy, 2013
Background: Previous studies have shown that fundamental movement skills (FMS) and physical activity are related. Specifically, earlier studies have demonstrated that the ability to perform a variety of FMS increases the likelihood of children participating in a range of physical activities throughout their lives. To date, however, there have not…

Warner, Marika; Robinson, Jackie; Heal, Bryan; Lloyd, Jennifer; Mandigo, James; Lennox, Bess; Davenport Huyer, Larkin – Prospects: Quarterly Review of Comparative Education, 2021
Regular physical activity significantly improves health outcomes, yet rates of childhood physical activity remain alarmingly low. Physical literacy has been identified as the foundation for quality physical education, suggesting that sport, education, and public health interventions should seek to increase physical literacy to promote physical…
