Gross Motor Skill Performance as a Function of Feedback Quantity and Location.
Jones, Ralph E.
The effect of the quantity and location of feedback cues on learning to perform the long jump was assessed. The subjects of this study, none of whom had formal training in jumping techniques, were randomly divided into groups. Each group received different feedback cues at different points in their performance during training. Feedback consisted of training cues given at different strides in the 14-stride approach to the jump. The results of this study indicated that groups receiving not less than one feedback nor more than two feedback cues performed more consistently providing that one of the feedback cues was located at either stride 6 or stride 10.
