Study of the Cognitive Plan in the Acquisition of Complex Motor Skill. Continuation of Study I: Good Motor Learners. Final Report.
Lindquist, Edith L.
This study continues the investigation of the general organizational plan used by good motor learners in acquiring a complex motor skill (tennis serve). The General Serve Problem Solving Model (GSPS), developed in earlier research, was utilized in an effort to improve and broaden it so that other types of learners may be studied and compared. Six subjects were observed over seven one-half hour learning sessions. They learned to serve by observing a loop film and still pictures and by asking questions. Results indicate that the model, in order to fit these six subjects, needed certain revisions. These are discussed. (Author/TL)
