This study was undertaken in an effort to determine whether or not left-handed students achieve as high pro- ficiency as do right-handed students in secondary school subjects which require motor ability. This problem came to the attention of the writer after he had examined the pre- vious writings in the general field of inquiry. It was found that mich of the material contained in these earlier studies had to do with the probable causes of handedness and what the effect would be to change a sinistral indi- vidual to dextral usage. Less material was found concern- ing the relative success of the left-handed student who was permitted to continue using his left hand.
