Assessing Children's Motor Behavior

Grade level, gender, and ability have a huge impact on a person’s motor behavior. I noticed that the grade levels of the children also alter their ability to perform motor and social development. The older the children were the greater their abilities were. The gender of the children also alters their ability to perform certain abilities. When children are younger they all seem to have the same ability, but as they grow older the boys and girls seem to develop certain skills better than the opposite sex. The ability of the students is also altered by the students based on their coordination. Some people are just naturally coordinated while others have to learn how to do certain tasks. Since many of the children at the school are very young they have not yet learned how to perform those tasks and still look awkward while they are trying to perform them.
