SIMILARITIES IN LATENT STRUCTURES IN MOTOR SPACE OBTAINED WITH LONGITUDINAL APPROACH AT 6 AND 7 YEAR OLD CHILDREN

Orce Mitevski Biljana Popeska Katerina Mitevska – Petruseva

The research was realized using 33 motor tests for estimation of 9 motor abilities, measured in 246 examiners, 6 and 7 year old children, tested longitudinally in two periods of time. Using factor analysis 10 latent dimensions were isolated for age groups, 6 and 7 years old children. The similarity between both age groups was determined using coefficients of congruention. The values of applied coefficient of congruention were significant only for the factors named as factor for coordinative explosive movements isolated at 6 year old children and the factor repetitive strength isolated at 7 year old children. The rest of the coefficients of congruention are not significant. This means that at the same group of children, tested in different periods, different motor abilities exist. Obtained results point out presence and influence of the component of development, which indicates the need of application and practical realization of different movement tasks, as well as a different approach in educational work with children in every age period.
