The research was conducted on a sample of 156 participants from the Republic of Macedonia among 11, 12 and 13 year olds. All samples from all five elementary schools were treated longitudinally at three temporal points and adults. At the age of 11 years the measurement is initial, at the age of 12 years the performance measurement is transitive, while the final measuring is realized at the age of 13 years. It was applied to a total of 11 anthropometrical measures in the three treatments among the same the pupils of 1112 and 13 years of age.The data gathered during the testing of manifest anthropometric measures are processed with the basic descriptive statistical parameters. In order to determine the differences among applied manifest anthropometrical variables between the first and second testing procedure (for 11 and 12 year olds), the second and third (12 and 13), as well as between the first and third procedure (11 and 13 year olds), a multivariate analysis of variance was applied (MANOVA), while the difference in each variable was determined individually by an univariate analysis of variance (ANOVA). Based on the results obtained during the examined period from 11 to 13 years can be concluded that among the 13 year old students intensive growth start followed by a significant increase in the values of the longitudinal and transversal dimensionality, while statistically significant values were obtained for variables AKNAD, AKPOD, and non-significant changes in the skin folds on the abdomen.
