An Information-Processing Approach to Skill Acquisition: Movement Organization.
Spaeth-Arnold, Ree K.
This document examines how subjects accomplish the task of matching movements to the characteristics of the performance environment. Literature pertaining to this topic is reviewed from the areas of time/motion study of industrial tasks, timing of coincidence-anticipation tasks, and cinematographic analysis of motor skill performance. A research sequence involving multidimensional analysis, combining both behavioral and cinematographic measures, is presented. The focus is on evluating both commonalities of movement organization across subjects and their relationship to environmental characteristics. Possible strategies are suggested for the teacher and learner concerned with skill acquisition. (Author/PB)
