Abstract

In this work we made an elaboration of theoretical and practical aspects in manifestation, measurement and assessment of balance in 7 year old children, as well as the representation of balance in PE contents in national PHE curriculum for second grade students. Presented knowledge has been obtained in a research realized on a sample of 123 male examinees, 7 year old children, second grade students in 5 primary schools in Skopje, Macedonia. Using adequate statistical methods we determined the manifestation of balance in children latent motor space, characteristics of test used for estimation of balance as well as norms for following and assessment of children`s achievements in suggested tests as a foundation for following and assessment in PE teaching process and creation of final grade for PHE. Following tests were used: Walking on upturned Swedish bench (RAOSK), Standing on a bench in width (RASKS) and Standing on a bench in length (RASKD). Obtained results point out a great variability of results, high coefficients for reliability and satisfactory validity of applied tests. According to this results, the test Walking on upturned Swedish bench (RAOSK), is recommended for future use for estimation of dynamic balance, while the test Standing on a bench in width (RASKS) has best metric characteristics and it is recommended for future use for evaluation of static balance in 7 year old children
