Developmental task analysis
Developmental Task Analysis

  • One of the best ways to examine how you can modify a task is to perform a task analysis.

    • Developmental task analysis outlines all of the task and environmental factors that influence the performance of students in the general movement categories (e.g., throw, strike, jump).

    • Under each of these factors, modifications are given, from the simplest to the most difficult.

  • Internet – great place to start
