Abstract

The purpose of the study was to develop a program to test schoolchildren’s coordination fitness at the initial training stage with the help of informative tests, which are available for use in general education schools. 

Materials and methods. The study involved 20 8-year-old boys. The children and their parents were informed about all the features of the study and gave their consent to participate in the experiment. The following research methods were used to solve the tasks set: analysis of scientific and methodological literature, pedagogical testing, and methods of mathematical statistics for processing research results.

Results. The proposed battery of tests comprehensively characterizes the development of coordination in 8-year-old boys. The analysis of correlation dependence between the test tasks revealed their high validity (rxy = 0.575-0.931 at p < 0.01). The tests that we selected have good and excellent retest reliability (rtt = 0.92-0.989). The combined test, which includes both general motor actions and karate elements, has a high degree of measurement reliability and can replace a whole battery of tests (rtt = 0.979).

Conclusions. The obtained data give grounds to argue that the chosen comprehensive testing of the level of coordination abilities development of 8-year-old boys during karate classes is accessible, informative and reliable, which makes them advisable for further research on improving motor coordination.
