Summary/Abstract: Every teacher naturally evaluates the effectiveness of his/her teaching activities. After the preparatory discussions with experts and meeting the necessary general scientific criteria for the creation of tests, the MOBAK test batteries were created to test the basic motor competencies object movement (ball control) and self-movement of the students at the 1st, 3rd and 5th grade elementary school. We formulated the following research question: What content differences are there between MOBAK 1, MOBAK 3 and MOBAK 5 in terms of age and gender of the tested subjects? Content analysis of the available documents, which is considered to be a method representing qualitative research, was the main method of data collection. We defined the terminology for the MOBAK test batteries. From the full range of the available papers about the MOBAK test batteries, we have selected a set of three test manuals published in English. Using comparison, abstraction, generalization and other methods of logic, we obtained new knowledge from the primary facts. We found that the MOBAK 1, MOBAK 3 and MOBAK 5 test batteries are identical for boys and girls, but they reflect the age diversity and, to our best knowledge, also gradation in complexity from the youngest 1st grade elementary students to the oldest 5th grade elementary students. Within the limits of the said spectrum, it will be possible to collect the initial results obtained through research testing and practical experience with the Slovak junior elementary students in the relevant age groups in the future.
