Abstract:
This study has been conducted to assess the impact of motor educability on academic achievement of adolescent boys of Jammu and Kashmir. To conduct the study, 250 adolescent boys studying in various schools operational in the State of Jammu and Kashmir were selected as sample. In all 50 adolescent boys from age group 13+ years age, 14+ years age, 15+ years age, 16+ years age and 17+ years age were selected randomly. Motor educability of selected subjects was assessed with the help of modified version of Johnson’s test of motor educability (1932) consisting of items such as front roll, back roll, jumping half turns and jumping full terms. Academic achievement of selected subjects was assessed with the help of previous year marks. In order to distribute adolescent boys in high, average and low level of motor educability, quartile methods was used. One Way ANOVA showed significantly superior academic achievement in adolescent boys exhibiting higher magnitude of motor educability as compared to adolescent boys exhibiting average and low level of motor educability. It was concluded that motor educability is strongly associated with academic achievement of adolescent boys.
