Objective: To examine the Effect of the Age-Appropriate Physical Activity Program of physical education on Selected Academic Performance variables among School Students of Medchal District.
Method: A sample of (N=180) subjects was selected by a random sampling method based on age categories. The subject’s age ranges from 10 to 16 years. The selected subjects were divided into six groups i.e. three experimental groups 1,2,3 and three control groups 1,2,3 based on the three age categories (category I – 10 to 12 yrs., category II- 12 to 14 yrs. and category III- 14 to 16 yrs. of age) from schools of Medchal district. Twelve weeks of Age-Appropriate Physical Activity Program (AAPAP) of P.E for 30 minutes in the initial 6 weeks and 40 minutes duration of training was given in later 6 weeks. Pre-test and post-test were conducted on selected academic performance variables i.e., GPA. GPA was administered by formative assessment tests. Statistical technique analysed initially was paired sample T-test was used to know the separate results for each age category and later ANCOVA and Bonferroni post hoc test was used in this study to know the combine effects of age categories on GPA.
Results: The results of the study indicate that improvement in selected academic performance variables, i.e., GPA, was significantly improved among students of experimental groups when compared to control groups as a result of their participation in an age-appropriate physical activity programs of their respective age categories.DOI: 10.22271/kheljournal.2022.v9.i3a.2506Pages: 15-19 | 82 Views 11 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
