30. The primary reason to use a transfer test to assess learning is to evaluate which of the following performance characteristics associated with the learning of a motor skill? 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 33. Gentile’s learning stages model indicates that in the first stage of learning, thelearner must learn to discriminate between which two types of environmental contextconditions ? 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 35. When a person who is learning handwriting moves the three arm segments as if two of the segments were one, this person demonstrates an early learning characteristic known asfreezing degrees of freedom. 36. Performing a skill with a minimum expenditure of energy is usually associatedwith which stage of learning? 37. The brain areas that are active during the early stage of learning are typicallynot the same as the areas active in the later stages of learning. 38. Which of the following is the best definition of the “power law of practice”? 39. Which of the following is most characteristic of expertmotor skill performers? 40. The general rule of thumb for predicting positive transfer between two motor skills is that the degree of positive transfer is related to the 41. The transfer-appropriate-processing theory accounts for why positive transfer occurs by stating that positive transfer is due to the similarity of thecognitive processes required by two motor skills. 42. The generally accepted view about the direction of bilateral transfer between two limbs is that it is

43. The amount of bilateral transfer from the preferred to the non-preferred limb isgreater than from the non-preferred to the preferred limb. 44. Bilateral transfer can be related to the concept of the generalized motor program (GMP) because muscle selection in performing a skill isa parameter of the GMP.45. One of the reasons for negative transfer is the initial cognitive confusion that occurs when a person must make a different movement in a familiar environmental context.
