Abstract: The purpose of this study was to validate two batteries of tests, totalling five test items, which were described in a pilot study done by Flinchum (1962). The present study also proposed to investigate measures of motor ability of children between the ages of three years, three months and five years, four months. Of the forty-four children who participated in this study, twenty-two of the children attended the laboratory nursery school in the School of Home Economics at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro, and twenty-two were enrolled in Greensboro's Parkway Baptist Church Sunday School. Age and availability were the two factors used in selecting the children.
