KIN 315 SPRING 2008 3 26. Suppose you did an experiment that compared the effect of two practice conditions (A & B) on learning a skill. The results showed that during practice, performance for condition B was better than for A. But, on the transfer test, A was better than B. What should you conclude about which practice condition is better for learning? A. Condition A is better for learning. 27. Which of the following is not classified as a performance variable? C. practice 28. Which of the following is generally not considered a characteristic of learning? D. improved strength 29. Which of the following is the best definition of a performance plateau during a practice session? A. performance stops improving; learning continues improving 30. An important distinction between the terms performance and learning is that learning is relatively permanent but performance is temporary. A. True 31. To graphically represent a performance curve for a performance outcome measure for a series of practice trials, the trials should be displayed on the y-axis. B. False 32. According to Fitts and Posner, the learner moves through three stages when learning a motor skill. These are the cognitive, the associative, and the D. autonomous. 33. Gentile’s learning stages model indicates that in the first stage of learning, the learner must learn to discriminate between which two types of environmental context conditions ? C. Regulatory vs. nonregulatory 34. Gentile’s learning stages model indicates that in the second stage of learning, one goal of the learner is related specifically to closed skills. This goal is called D. fixation.
