Tayseer Mansi, Aydah Awamleh

Abstract


The purpose of this study was to examine gender and Handedness differences in visual simple Reaction Time and choice, time movement and eye hand Coordination performance existed. Seventy students at the University of Jordan participated in this study.
The researchers used the descriptive method. They used Lafayette Instrument Multi-Operational Apparatus Model 35600 to assess reaction time and Steadiness Tester, Hole Type Model 32011 to assess eye-hand coordination.
All participants had normal or corrected-to-normal vision and hearing.
Results indicated that there were significant differences found between male and female on visual simple and choice reaction times, male were faster than female, but no significant differences were found on eye-hand coordination. Furthermore, no statistically significant differences between left and right hand on reaction time were found,
The researchers recommended that the need to be more considered in Gender differences in visual simple Reaction Time and choice, time movement and eye hand in training programs. And further studies to determine the generalize ability of our findings.
