KIN 3513 Test Three Lecture Notes March 31, Exam 3: All material covered in class + Book Ch 11 to 15 (pp 246-366); Basic knowledge of the material covered for Exam 1 and 2, so you can understand the concepts covered in class and Chapter 11 to 15. Defining and Assessing Learning - Performance Versus Learning o Performance : Execution of a skill at a specific time and in a specific location Observable behavior: We can measure it objectively, directly o Learning Learning is not directly observable Must be inferred from observable behavior and the characteristics of a person’s performance . We make inferences about people’s internal states by observing their behavior. Learning Definition A change in the capability of a person to perform a skill that must be inferred from a relatively permanent improvement in performance as a result of practice or experience. The person increases his/her capability, or potential to perform the skill. Whether or not the person performs to this capability or not relies on performance variables. o Why not ability? Ability is inherited to the person and will not change, it is stable. Capability is something that we can improve. - Performance Characteristics of Skill Learning o Five characteristics Improvement: There needs to be improvement over time to say there is learning occurring. The person needs to continue to perform at a higher level of skill than the first performance. Consistency: As learning progresses, performance needs to become more consistent. From one performance attempt to another, a person’s performance characteristics need to become more similar. Early learning performance is more variable than later in learning performance. Stability: As learning progresses, performance stability increases. Stability refers to the influence on skill performance of perturbations that can disrupt performance. Internal perturbations: Stress External Perturbations: environmental conditions, obstacles, wind, weather Persistence: The improved performance capability is marked by an increasing amount of persistence. As the performance capability is improved, it lasts over increasing amounts of time. Forgetting plays a role in decreased capability.

KIN 3513 Test Three Lecture Notes Adaptability: Adaptability is different from stability since you are adapting to a new situation. You use the skills you have learned to perform is different conditions with slight changes. Improved performance is adaptable to a variety of performance context characteristics. - Assessing Learning by Observing Practice Performance o Performance curves : one way to asses learning is to record levels of a performance measure during the period of time a person practices a skill. Line graph describing performance by plotting performance measures
