Background: The present study was conducted to determine the effect of selected demographic factors on the hand-eye coordination performance of secondary school students.
 Methods: The current research was of causal type - after the occurrence. A total of 326 high school teenagers were selected from 4 districts of Shiraz city (326 males, age range 16-18 years, 90.2% right-handed; 7.7% left-handed; 1.5% both hands; non-response 0.6). Then they were investigated using J Plus software, the available targeted sampling method, the Grooved pegboard test, and a researcher-made demographic form under the same implementation conditions.
Results: The one-way analysis of the variance test showed a significant difference between the fields of study (p= 0.02). Tukey's post hoc test in boys whose right hand was dominant found that this difference is between humanities and technical (p=0.009) and humanities and mathematics (p=0.005) groups.
Conclusion: Hand-eye coordination performance is more affected by the cognitive aspect and information processing, and all kinds of constraints can be considered an essential and influencing variable in the execution of movement patterns in which coordination plays a significant role.

  • Hand-eye coordination is the key and foundation of fine motor skills in motor development.
  • The most widely used hand-eye coordination test is the Grooved Pegboard Test (GPT).
  • The most important factors in coordination are: person, environment and task.
  • Hand-eye coordination performance is more influenced by the cognitive aspect and information processing.
