New Studies in Education: A Scale for Measuring the Antero-Posterior Posture of Ninth Grade Boys


by Clifford Lee Brownell 1928

THE development of good posture is a major objective of most physical education programs. It was the purpose of this study to develop a scale for measuring antero-posterior posture that is comparable to scales used to measure educational achievements in other subjects. The procedure was as follows: 1 1. A large number of posture silhouettes of ninth grade boys was collected and a random sampling made. 2. The silhouettes comprising the random sampling were arranged in rank order by competent judges of posture. 3. A posture scale has been developed by using the combined ranks of the various judges and the P.E. difference as the unit of quality measurement.
