1 EXB102 Lecture, February 23, 2010 READING: MAGILL CH2 Talk about Olympics, ice skating… MEASUREMENT OF MOTOR LEARNING SCIENTIFIC METHOD- refers to this when writing a lab report 1.) Observation/Description- lowest (did this with match observation assignment, spending people out in the wild, environment and do not have any effects or influences. *Correlation relationship- suggests there is some relationship between different variables and different behaviors in our case that might take place. Ex. Lifestyle behaviors, so people that smoke or drink alcohol in excess have poor eating habits and are sedentary, there is a very high correlation with those people to have heart disease, lung cancer, diabetics, obesity etc…Correlation evidence that it exist. Ex. As shoe size increase in Jr. High students, math scores goes up. As they grow literally, they are taking new level math courses. 2.) Causal Relationship- higher level of strength, when you actually have evidence that a relationship is casual. One thing causes another. Smoking cigarettes causes lung cancer. 3.) Generalization- if you do a research study on Jr. High kids, can you generalize the results to other groups or population? Errors are made. 4.) Application- taking the research findings and applying them in the real world so they can use them. MEASURING MOTOR LEARNING Performance Curves (leave room for graphic) 1.)

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
