Description
e c n e i c S h t 1. A good reader will have more fixations while reading a line of text than a poor reader. a) False b) True 2. The term “serial skill” was discussed in lecture. As explained in the Readings, the word “serial” implies that: a) The movements will be longer than discrete skills and not have a recognizable beginning and end point. b) The movements will be shorter than discrete skills and not have a recognizable beginning and end point. c) The movements will have a recognizable beginning and end point and be quite brief in duration. d) The order of the movement elements is usually critical for success. e) The movement is less complicated than a discrete skill. 3. Static Visual Acuity and Dynamic Visual Acuity depend a great deal on perceptual learning. a) False b) True 4. Stimulus identification represents which of the following information processing stages? a) decision mechanism b) perceptual mechanism c) effector mechanism d) response selection e) feedback 5. Crossman’s Confusion Function is written ________1_________ DRT = a + b (log X2 – log X2)2bits Which of the following statements isNOT correct? a) “b” represents the slope of the function b) “a” represents the amount of time taken by the perceptual and decision mechanism c) the more similar in size X1 and X2 are the slower the DRT will be d) the general form of this equation is Y = a + b(x) e) X1 and X2 must be presented simultaneously 2 6. If the Index of Difficulty of a motor task has changed from 4 bits to 5 bits, then the amount of information to be processed: a) has doubled b) has increased by 20% c) has increased by 25% d) has increased by 50% e) can’t be calculated Use the following information to answer the next 2 questions. Assume that you are a line judge during a tennis match. Your job is to say nothing if the ball is “in” but you are to yell “out” when a ball is hit beyond/past the line you are watching. [The right hand curve is a signal; i.e. the ball is out]. 7. You are told that every time you make a call it will be reviewed by television replay and if you are incorrect the commentators will say very rude things about you to the worldwide viewing audience. a) perceptual sensitivity will shift right resulting in more misses and more correct negatives b) perceptual sensitivity will shift left resulting in fewer misses and fewer correct negatives c) perceptual sensitivity will decrease resulting in more misses and more false alarms d) beta will shift left resulting in more misses and more correct negatives e) beta will shift right resulting in more misses and more correct negatives f) beta will shift left resulting in fewer misses and more hits 8. A match goes late into the evening and it starts to get dark. a) perceptual sensitivity will increase resulting in more misses and more correct negatives b) perceptual sensitivity will shift left resulting in fewer misses and fewer correct negatives c) perceptual sensitivity will decrease resulting in more misses and more false alarms d) beta will shift left resulting in more misses and more correct negatives e) beta will shift right resulting in more misses and more correct negatives f) beta will shift left resulting in fewer misses and more hits 9. Reaction time is the interval between which two events? a) warning signal and stimulus signal b) stimulus signal and initiation of movement c) stimulus signal and the completion of the movement d) warning signal and the initiation of the response e) initiation of movement and completion of movement 3 10. Researchers have identified a number of variables that influence reaction time. Which of the variables described below influence the time required to complete the mental processes prior to an actual movement? a) The number of response choices available to the performer b) The complexity of the response to be performed c) The accuracy demands of the movement to be performed d) The amount of practice provided on the specific task e) a) and b) f) a) , b) and c) g) all of the above 11. Which error measure evaluates a person’s performance consistency during a series of trials? a) AE b) CE c) E d) VE e) Both a) and c) together 12. The role played by vision in speed-accuracy skills depends on the phase of the limb movement? a) False b) True 13. To determine when a muscle begins to become active, a researcher would use which of the following measurement methods? a) Discriminated Reaction Time b) Electromyography (EMG) c) Fractionated reaction time d) Kinematics e) T.A.I.S. 14. A person has the following error scores for a series of 5 tr(+5, -3, +8, +10, -4). Their AE score would be: a) 3.2 b) 6 c) 16 d) 30 e) not possible to calculate 4 15. Which test is used to examine thepersistence characteristic of improved performance due to practicing a skill?? a) practice observation b) retention test c) transfer test d) performance test e) skills aptitude test 16. Use the skill classification continuum discussed in class, to classify sprinting 100 metres in a race at the Olympic Games. a) open, forced paced, discrete b) open, self-paced, discrete c) closed, self-paced, discrete d) open, forced paced, continuous e) closed, forced paced, continuous f) open, self-paced, continuous 17. The Limiting Principle is a concept that few instructors or coaches understand. This principle a) demonstrates that we have limits to the amount of information that we can process b) explains why a performance/action has been done correctly c) explains what has been done incorrectly with a performance d) indicates that we can tell what has be done correctly by observing the end result e) is not described correctly by any answer above. 18. The term “automation through particularization” describes skilled performers. To achieve this automatic state involves some costs. What are these costs? a) time d) specialisation g) a) and b) and c) b) money e) a) and c) h) a) , b) , c) and d) c) health f) a) and d) 19. An important concept in the course is that our ability to process information is limited. How is this limitation manifested? a) Long term memory can hold an unlimited amount of information. b) Information is filtered out or lost by the system. c) An abstract coding method is used to store information in long term memory d) It takes time for each stage to process information e) a) and c) f) a) and d) g) b) and c) h) b) and d) 5 20. The terms skill and ability are often used incorrectly by people. Which statement(s) is (are) correct? a) skill implies that a performer has done the activity correctly at least once b) ability implies that that the performer has done the activity correctly at least once c) ability implies that the performer is capable of doing the activity correctly many times d) skill implies that the performer is capable of doing the activity correctly many times e) a) and c) f) b) and d) g) none of the above 21. Performance and learning are terms that explain different concepts. Which statement(s) below is (are) correct about these terms. a) learning can be measured directly by watching a performer complete an activity b) performance is the current behaviour of an athlete and can be measured directly c) le
