The purpose of the study was to ascertain the assessment of nutritional status, body mass index and achievement motivation of intercollegiate (N=48) and interuniversity (N=48) level male volleyball players. Number of calories consumed was calculated as per the procedure mentioned in the book entitled Nutritive Value of the Indian Foods published by National Institute of Nutrition, Hyderabad. Achievement Motivation was computed using the Achievement Motivation Scale prepared and standardized by M. L. Kamlesh. The analysis of data using mean difference method (t-ratio) shows that the nutritional intake in terms of calories as well as achievement motivation score of the interuniversity level male volleyball players is significantly higher as compared to intercollegiate male volleyball players. The t-values obtained were 5.30 with respect to calories consumed and 2.85 in the case of achievement motivation. Both these values were higher than the table value of 1.98 with 94 degrees of freedom. With respect to body mass index t t-value of 1.24 reveals that the male volleyball players of interuniversity and intercollegiate level do not significantly differ from each other in body- mass index.Pages: 24-27 | 834 Views 37 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
