A Modelling of the Effect of Biomotor Capabilities on the Special Ablitiy Test Course

Sercan Öncen, Serkan Aydın


The aim of this study is to evaluate some bio motor capabilities which are thought to have an effect on Special
Ability Test Course (SATC) test scores applied as an entrance exam in the School of Physical Education and Sports
(SPES). 70 participants who were successful in the SATC (51 male (181 ± 5.5 cm, 73.9 ± 9.8 kg) and 19 female (165
± 5.6 cm, 54.7 ± 6.49 kg) were included in the study. The bio motor capability performances of the participants, such
as speed (10 m, 20 m, 30 m, 100 m sprint), agility (T-test, 505 agility test), and anaerobic power (Sargent vertical
jump test) were measured two weeks after the SATC tests. The performances of the participants in the 2018 SATC of
the Tekirdag Namik Kemal University SPES were used as the scores of the SATC. The mean of a difference test, a
correlation analysis, and a multiple linear regression analysis were used as the statistical method (p<0,05). While
there was a significant positive correlation between the SATC agility (r = 799 **) and speed (r = 895 **) scores,
there was a negative correlation between SATC scores and anaerobic power output (r = -719 **). Statistical analysis
was performed by taking the gender factor into account in the linear regression estimation due to the significant
difference (p <0.05) between the SATC scores according to the gender variable. The bio motor capabilities of the
male participants, which contributed the most to the SATC scores, were determined as 505 agility (Beta = 424) and
30 m (Beta = 379) speed (SATC Male=-9.992 + (10.478 x 505 test) + (6.742 x 30 m). However, the bio motor
capabilities of the female participants did not contribute to the SATC scores.
