Abstract

The intent of this research was to compare the effect of practice, instruction, and videotape replay versus practice and instruction on the acquisition of a selected novice motor skill. Sixty-four randomly selected, co-ed physical education students participated in this study. Subjects ranged in age from fifteen to nineteen years old. The subjects were all selected from the Southern Regional High School District located in Ocean County, New Jersey.

Subjects were assigned to one of two treatment groups depending upon whether they received practice, instruction, and videotape replay (Group A) or practice and instruction (Group B). In addition to the treatments, pre and posttests were administered for comparison.

Means and standard deviations were used to obtain standard scores. Data gathered from the tests were analyzed through Student's t-tests for independent samples to compare groups with respect to their pretest and posttest performances. In addition, Student's t-tests for dependent samples were used to compare pre to posttest performance within each group.

There was no significant difference (P > .05) between pretest A (practice, instruction, and videotape replay) and pretest B (practice and instruction) scores. Also, there was no significant difference (P > .05) between posttest A and Posttest B scores and pretest and posttest scores for group B. A significant difference (P < .05) was found, however, between pretest A and posttest A scores.
