The Effects of Feedback on Psychomotor Performance of Fourth and Sixth Grade Students.
Hurley, Carl Edward
The purpose of this study was to ascertain whether or not there is a significantly different level of psychomotor performance among fourth and sixth grade students who experience the following feedback treatments: (1) viewing a videotape recording of their own performance, (2) rating their own performance with the aid of a check sheet while viewing their own actions by means of videotape recording, (3) rating their own performance with the aid of a check sheet alone, (4) or receiving none of the experimental treatments (control group). The psychomotor tasks of layout, holding, cutting, and assembling were presented to each subject individually through the use of a film and audio tape recording. After receiving the presentation each subject performed the four operations while his performance was videotaped. After the respective feedback, treatment was administered, and the subject performed the same operations a second time. Each subject's second performance was videotaped for rating by three trained judges. This check sheet produced a performance score on each of the four operations for each subject. A major conclusion is that a higher level of performance does result when a student rates his own performance with the aid of a check sheet and a videotape replay. (Author/JS)
