Abstract

This study aims to identify bodily-kinesthetic intelligence level among students attending different levels of swimming courses. To investigate students motor intelligence level in relation to gender. To investigate students bodilykinesthetic intelligence level in relation to swimming course level. To investigate the relation between bodilykinesthetic intelligence level and swimming performance skills level among students attending different levels of swimming courses. The population of this study were students who attended one of the three levels of the swimming courses in the Faculty of Physical Education /University of Jordan (n= 223). The sample of the study consisted of (189) students (62 females & 127 males). A bodily-kinesthetic intelligence scale consisting of 18 questions was used to collect the required data. The data was analyzed using descriptive and statistical analysis.
Results showed that the sample acquired motor intelligence through swimming context on an average level scale (72.2%). There was no significant difference in bodily-kinesthetic intelligence level between males and females students. While there were significant differences in bodily-kinesthetic intelligence level according to swimming course level in favor to swimming course level. There was significant relation between bodily-kinesthetic intelligence level and skills performance level among students in all swimming courses. Therefore bodily-kinesthetic intelligence level proved to have an intimate relationship with swimming performance skills level among students attending different levels of swimming courses in the Faculty of Physical Education, University of Jordan, with no differences due to gender.


Key words:
