A STUDY OF MECHANICAL APTITUDE AMONG STUDENTS WITH LEARNING DISABILITIES AND WITHOUT LEARNING DISABILITIES By Subeesh Gopi[1] and Dr. K.M. Mustafa[2]

 

Abstract

In the present study, the researchers attempted to assess and compare mechanical aptitude among students with learning disabilities and without learning disabilities. Descriptive method was used in the study. Sixty samples consisting of thirty students having learning disabilities and another thirty students without learning disabilities. It was with the help of Block Resource Centre (BRC) that the researchers selected the students with learning disabilities. Descriptive statistics, independent ‘t’test and ANOVA were used to analyse the data. Result  reveals that, the mechanical aptitude of the students with learning disabilities is higher than the students without learning disabilities. The gender is an influencing factor in mechanical aptitude of students. The age is not a determining factor in mechanical aptitude of students with learning disabilities. The classes in which they are studying have no significant influence in the mechanical aptitude of students with learning disability.
