Co-curriculum index assessments (IPKo) were used to assess psychomotor domain achievement level. Results showed all psychomotor skills were rated only at a ‘good’ and ‘moderate’ level. The skill item showed the highest percentage of 65.7% cadets at ‘good’ level and 34.3% cadets are at ‘moderate’ level with mean value of 3.66. The overall mean of psychomotor skills (physical skills) is at a ‘good’ level of 3.56. Results demonstrate the effectiveness of co-curricular activities involvement among university students in developing psychomotor domains.
