Ammons, R. B. – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 1988
A review and commentary on the previous article discusses the effects of stabilized retinal images on performance and the perceptual organization of a patterned skill. Future research on distribution-of-practice is considered. (JD)

Christina, Robert W.; Shea, John B. – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 1988
Criticism of the theory that massed practice depresses performance as well as learning asserts that any generalization based on some limited amount of admissible evidence will provide an incomplete description of the psychological processes underlying skill learning. (JD)

Lintern, Gavan – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 1988
Further commentary on distributed practice and the acquisition of motor skills points out that there are at least two viable theoretical perspectives that can be brought to bear on issues surrounding the acquisition of perceptual-motor skills. (JD)

Magill, Richard A. – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 1988
A critique of the lead article on the effects of practice distribution on motor learning points out that while this is not a new issue, it brings up some important concerns that are not unique to the practice distribution issue but are problems in any investigation of skill learning. (JD)

Newell, K. M.; And Others – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 1988
Three subsidiary issues are discussed that raise further questions about the generality of conclusions regarding the effects of massed and distributed practice on the learning of motor skills: (1) duration of practice; (2) learning-performance distinction; and (3) data synthesis and theory development.
