2.a.Define the term procedural skill as it is commonly used in the motor learning literature b.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.
