How does the acquisition of skill affect performance?

EasyPDHPE > Factors Affecting Performance > How does the acquisition of skill affect performance?

Students learn about:

Students learn to:

  • examine the stages of skill acquisition by participating in the learning of a new skill, eg juggling, throwing with the non-dominant arm
  • describe how the characteristics of the learner can influence skill acquisition and the performance of skills
  • design a suitable plan for teaching beginners to acquire a skill through to mastery. The plan should reflect:
    • appropriate practice methods for the learners
    • the integration of relevant performance elements
    • an awareness of how instruction may vary according to characteristics of the learner
    • how feedback will be used as learners progress through the stages of skill acquisition
  • develop and evaluate objective and subjective performance measures to appraise performance
