7.Discuss (a) the practice specificity hypothesis in terms of its applications to motor skill learning; and (b) how it relates to the practice variability hypothesis. Study Questions ch.171.Discuss two different ways the term over-learning can be used to relate to learning motor skills.
2.a.Define the term procedural skill as it is commonly used in the motor learning literatureb.What was the recommendation from the results of Schendel and Hagman study for using over-learning strategy to help people learn a procedural skill? Indicate why they made this recommendation. 3.Discuss the evidence that would support the view that more is better may not be the best approach to implementing an over-learning strategy to help people learn a motor skill 4.Describe how the concept of practice distribution is related to the intertrial interval and to the length and distribution of practice sessions. Describe a motor skill-learning situation for each. 5.Describe three research studies that provide evidence that demonstrates the benefit of distributed over massed practice sessions for learning a motor skill. 6.Discuss three possible explanations for the learning benefit that results from distributedpractice sessions compared to massed schedules for the length and number of practice sessionsscheduled for learning a motor skill.
