|Abstract:||The present study aims to assess motor coordination of primary-school students of Barcelona and its province. For evaluation we used the KTK test. 1254 people, 670 boys and 584 girls with ages between 7 and 10 years participated in the study. Descriptive analysis and the comparison between gender and age were performed. The results indicate that about 40% of the population studied presents results below normal, around 57% were classified with normal coordination and only 4.6% has been above this rating. The boys have presented significantly better results than girls. The study data do not permit to generalize the results, however as a representative sample, it leads us to believe that the student population in elementary education from Barcelona and its province has a coordinative level below expected for their age.|
