The study analyzes the age- and gender-specific physicality test data arrays including physical development, physical fitness and functionality tests, with the 1-4-grade schoolchildren sampled for the tests. The data arrays were analyzed versus the physical development indices consolidating six progress rating criteria; functionality indices consolidating five criteria; and physicality indices consolidating four criteria. The sample physicality index was calculated as the integrated value produced by the total physical development, functionality and physical fitness indices summated and divided by 3. The study found the integrated physicality indices of the 1-4-grade female group being lower than that of the male group; they were estimated at 118.9, 126.6, 135.8 and 145.4 units for the 1, 2, 3 and 4 grade female groups, respectively, versus 126.0, 133.5, 145.4 and 156.5 units for the peer male groups. For the four years of tests, the integrated physicality index was found to grow by 22.2% and 24.2% in the female and male subsamples, respectively.

Keywords: integrated indices , physical development, functionality , physical fitness, indices, 1-4-grade schoolchildren.
