Summary

This study was undertaken to determine the physical and motor fitness levels of elementary school students in Georgia. Components of the study included: (1) the students' physical and motor fitness levels when taught by physical education specialists and classroom teachers; (2) the relationship of motor performance variables to reading and mathematical abilities; and (3) the relationship of self concept to motor performance. Taking part in this study were 2,546 children in the second, fourth, and sixth grades, representing nineteen schools. Test results are displayed in 71 statistical tables. Highlights of findings are presented on: (1) sex differences; (2) specialist and classroom teacher differences; (3) right- and left-handed differences; (4) the relationship of reading and mathematics skills to motor performance variables; (5) the relationship of self concept to motor performance variables; (6) age relationship and motor performance variables; (7) reading, mathematics, and self concept relationships; and (8) differences among Georgia children and children tested by the American Alliance for Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance and those tested in Minnesota. Descriptions of the tests used are appended. (JD)
