We find a basketball game one of these activities which need a degree of intelligence and knowledge that helps in developing the skill level of the students and selecting the teacher for the appropriate exercises to teach different basic skills. In this context, our study aims to measure the cognitive level of the students of the third secondary level, as well as their level in some basic skills.

The absence of a gender effect and the level of logical and physical intelligence and interaction between them at the cognitive level while being influenced by the level of space intelligence in favor of those with high intelligence. 2. There is a difference in the level of skill of pointing, scrolling and dialogue for the benefit of males, and there is no impact on the level of intelligence, whether logical or physical or space. 3. There is an impact of the interaction between sex and the level of spatial intelligence at the cognitive level, where males and females with high intelligence showed more response. 4. The interaction of sex and the level of intelligence, whether logical, physical or spatial, has no impact on the skills of correction, scrolling and dialogue. 5.
