Abstract

This is a report of a study of some relationships between scholastic efficiency and certain motor skills. Three questions were asked: 1. Do the motor abilities of the scholastically superior student differ from those of the members of the same class whose academic work is inferior? 2. How far do mechanisms of central control account for such differences as exist? 3. What is the significance of these differences as related to scholastic superiority? An answer was sought by comparing the achievement in a series of tests of motor ability of two groups of second year men registered in the College of Liberal Arts, State University of Iowa.
