Abstract: The present investigation examined the relationship of three developmental variables—skeletal maturity, visual-motor functioning, and mental ability—with the early- and late-trial performance scores on three motor control tasks. In addition, the degree to which early- and late-trial performance on each of the motor control tasks could be predicted by the developmental variables was investigated. The subjects for the study were 35 7-year-old girls. The developmental variables were measured by the following instruments: (a) skeletal maturity was determined from a hand-wrist X-ray; (b) the average of the T-score conversions for the five subtests of the Frostig was the measure of visual-motor functioning; and (c) mental ability was assessed by the OLMAT, Primary I level.
