Coordination is one of the abilities that define human motor space. It`s related with successful realization on many movement tasks especially when learning new motor movements. The aim of this paper is to determine test characteristics of movement tasks applied for estimation of coordination in six and seven years old male children as well as to determine the changes in manifestation of coordination at the same group of children at the age of six years and lately at the age of seven. Coordination was analyzed using four motor tests, applied on a sample of 246 examiners, students in first and second grade in five primary schools in Macedonia, included in initial measurement at the age of six and lately in the final measurement at the age of seven. Using adequate statistics methods we determined tests characteristics: discriminativity, reliability, validity and represenatativity. T- Test was used to determine the differences in test achievements between two measurements. Obtained results suggest on very good validity and reliability of applied tests and recommendation for future use in PE teaching process. T – test results suggest on statistically significant better results in final measurement in all applied tests. Obtained results suggest on positive development changes and Improvement of coordination at children at early school period. We recommended several models for improvement of coordination in children. One of the models is implementation of Brain Break Videos. This is based on their characteristics such as new, unfamiliar movements, complex coordination, and movement on music and in new environment.
