Cognitive Hypothesis -3)since most researchers agree that the first stage of learninga motor skill involves a high degree of cognitive activity, especially concerning “what to do,” mental practice can help answer many performance-related questions without the pressure that accompanies physical performance of the skill; in the later stages of learning, mental practice can help the person to develop strategiesand correct errors68.In lab 11 participants were place in either a variable practice or constant practice group and then tested by performing a novel variation of the task. This was done to asses which aspect of learning?69.All but one of the following are possible explanations as to why distributed practice may lead to better learning? Which is not?70.
Research has demonstrated that mental imagery ability is an individual difference variable that influences the success of mental practice i.The result of engaging in these cognitive activities during practice is that learner develops a more elaborate memory representation for the skills the he can access more readily during a test.
