Benefits of Organization on Learning and Retention.
Diggles, Virginia A.
An experiment to determine the effects of perceptual organization on learning and remembering a motor task is described. Four test groups received different methods of presentation of movements to be learned--sequential-sequential, sequential-random, random-sequential, and random-random. Analysis of variance was used to examine results. Results presented support of the hypothesis that perceptual organization on learning a motor task is beneficial. No evidence was found to support any beneficial effect of perceptual organization on retention of motor information over a period of time. (JD)
