Factors Influencing Movement Consistency during the Learning/Performance of Perceptual Motor Tasks.
Moore, John O.; Beitel, Patricia A.
Literature examining elements influencing the production of consistent human movement is reviewed in this paper. The review is limited to theoretical papers and research studies on sport-related tasks that utilize actual representations of movement, e.g., film, electromyogram, or videotape; rather than movement only implied from goal attainment, e.g., error scores in target accuracy. The existent research and theory concerned with human movement consistency during perceptual motor task performance/learning repeatedly identifies three major influencing factors: (1) type of task/environmental demands; (2) amount of practice with the task; and (3) skills level of the individual. A selected reference list is included. (JD)
