A comparative study on psychomotor variables among different players
AUTHOR(S): Debabrata Samanta and Dr. Manamohan Rout
The purpose of the study was to compare the kinaesthetic perception and reaction time between athletes, football and kho-kho players. For the present study total 450 male players (150 from each athletes, football and kho-kho) of Inter College State Competition belonging from various college in West Bengal were selected. The age of the subject was ranged between 18-25 years. For the present study selected psychomotor veriables (Kinaesthetic perception and reaction time) were selected as the measuring criteria. To find out the difference between athletes, football and kho-kho players in relation to their kinaesthetic perception and reaction time the ANOVA test was applied as the statistical treatment.. Post Hoc test of Scheffer’s is followed to decide significant differentiation between paired means wherever ‘f’ ratio is important. Significant difference was found between athletes, football and kho-kho players in relation to their kinaesthetic perception and reaction time where calculated the value of kinesthetic sense significantly differs in between Athletes and Football players (MD = 3.18), Athletes and Kho-Kho players (MD=3.37) since the result of the mean differential value were higher than the crucial differential value of 0.48 at significance level of 0.05. Mean value of Football and Kho –Kho players (MD = 0.19) is less than the critical difference value of 0.48. Hence this difference is not statistically significant. Since the mean of Reaction Time significantly differs in between Athletes and Football players (MD = 23.02), Football and Kho –Kho players (MD = 39.54) as well as Athletes and Kho-Kho players (MD=16.52) because the value of mean difference is greater than the value of crucial difference 4.57 at significance level of 0.05. From the findings of the study it is concluded that Kinesthetic sense is highly required and more prominent in case of football players than athletes and kho-kho players (almost similar in later two cases). The reaction time of athletes and kho-kho players is better than football players, whereas the kho-kho players have better reaction time than athletes.
