Final Exam Review 1) The reliability of a motor test refers to the extent to which the test measures what it is intended to measure. 2) List three primary symptoms of Parkinson’s Disease. Tremors- shaking in the hands, arms, and face. Rigidity- stiffness/ rigid joints Bradykinesa- slow movement, slowness in execution of a movement 3) Watching a volleyball you have just served out of bounds could be classified as: a) Extrinsic Feedback – sensory information provided by an outside source and in addition to that which normally occurs when people produce movements (i.e. intrinsic feedback); sometimes referred to as augmented feedback. b) Knowledge of Performance (KP) – augmented feedback that provides information about the quality of the movement a performer has produced; sometimes referred to as kinematic feedback. c) Intrinsic Feedback sensory information that normally occurs when people produce movements; it can come from sources outside the body (exteroception) or inside the body (proprioception). d) Exteroception – sensory information arising from within a person’s body that signals body and limb position and movement; similar to kinesthesis. e) f) 4) Motor Learning: a) Is assumed to have occurred whenever performance improves. b) Can occur in children simply as a result of physical maturation. c) Can occur in the absence of extrinsic feedback. d) Is a relatively permanent change in motor performance e) f) All of the above. 5) T/F. Guidance is a strong positive learning variable. False, guidance should be used only in certain situations, as a last resort, due to dependency. 6) List two different types of practice situations in which physical guidance can be useful. Gymnastics and teaching someone to re-bend their knee are good situations to use guidance because they both have a high risk for injury. 7) What is the name given to practice involving the rehearsal of many variations within a class of movements? Varied Practice 8) T/F. Extrinsic feedback is necessary for motor learning to occur. False because learning can occur from only using intrinsic feedback. For example a child learning to walk or crawl does this intrinsically. 9) Ideally, how should the absolute and relative frequencies of extrinsic feedback change over the course of motor learning? As the learner improves in the skill they are learning, the instructor should not be giving as much feedback. This is so the learner will not develop dependency.
