Prediction of Gymnastic Performance from Arousal and Anxiety Measures.
Basler, Marilyn L.; And Others
This study predicts gymnastic performance, arousal, and anxiety measures from past performances. Pulse rate and the Palmar Sweat Index were utilized as indicants of arousal. Anxiety was assessed by means of the State-Trait Anxiety Inventory. Eighteen members of the Ithaca College women's varsity gymnastic team were tested throughout the 1973-74 competitive season. Regression analysis revealed that past performance loaded most heavily in the prediction equation. Arousal and anxiety measures were of relative unimportance in the regression equation. Any attempt to predict gymnastic performance without taking into account past performance would be folly. (Author)
