Creation of percentile norms on hand reaction time of secondary girls’ students
Suman Chandra Roy
Mastery over these skills totally builds upon some basic factors, such as reaction time, agility, speed, power, co-ordination etc. These components are playing an important role during sports activities. Norms are representative of any larger population. Norms must be based on a particular type of group that is well identified.Reaction time is specifying to the speed at which an athlete responds to an extraneous stimulus. In games and sports normally we measured simple reaction time. There were so many tests for measuring reaction time. The researcher here took Nelson’s Reaction Time Ruler test to measure hand reaction time of the school girls’ students. At present Covid-19 pandemic situation students can measure their reaction time level at home with minimum requirement of equipments. The researcher has tended himself to do this work for the following reason- 1. To construct norms on reaction time test of girls students, 2. To measure hand reaction time of school students. Total 800 samples ages between 9-13 years were collected from various schools and locality in West Bengal. After collection of data age wise a percentile norms were prepared for girls’ students.
