Aim: To determine the reliability of the tests used to measure the coordination abilities. Method: A total of 35 articles were searched through a bibliographic review in databases such as: Sport Discus, Ebsco, Proquest, Science Direct and Google Scholar. After the search of the articles, a table was made in Excel 2013 in order to organize it in the form of a database. Thirty of the 35 theoretical and empirical articles were selected about the tests used to measure the coordination abilities in acyclic sports and physical activities. After that, the articles were analyzed and it was determined which one of the tests was the most used to measure the coordination abilities. Results: The articles were evaluated in terms of protocol, reliability, validity and objectivity in order to assess the reliability of the tests on a scale of 0 to 3.From the assessment made it is evident that the Star excursion balance test (SEBT), and Y Balance Test (YBT) are outlined as the most appropriate to measure the balance. Regarding the reaction ability, the Galton test is an easy application test, however the reliability parameters are not the most adequate to measure the reaction. The Illinois Ball Dribbling Test, Coda Test and Arrowhead Agility Test stand out as the most appropriate to measure the coordination skills in specific sports. While, the MABC-2 Test, and KTK Test stand out as the most suitable to measure various coordination abilities. Finally, the T-Test, Illinois Test and 505 Agility Test are outlined as the most appropriate to measure agility.
