Chapter 1

Chapter1

…Classifying motor skills


Terminology
Terminology…

  • Skills, Actions, Movements

    • Skills = Actions

      • These are goal directed movement activities (“family of movements”; “equivalence class”)

    • Movements

      • Actual limb configurations used to achieve the action/skill

      • Differ from person to person, and within skill

    • Examples?

      • See “a closer look” on p. 4


Classification gross fine
Classification…gross/fine

  • Size of musculature required

  • Gross motor skill – large musculature

  • Fine motor skill - small musculature


Classification gross fine1
Classification…gross/fine

  • Size of musculature required

    • Used a lot in special ed. & adapted PE

    • Some motor deficits are more noticeable with a particular type of skill

  • Examples?


Classification discrete cont
Classification…discrete/cont.

  • Specificity of action’s beginning and end

  • Discrete motor skill

  • Serial motor skill

  • Continuous motor skill


Classification discrete cont1
Classification…discrete/cont.

  • Specificity of action’s beginning and end

    • Used often to help analyze how a skill is controlled

      • Discrete – controlled more by planning

      • Continuous – controlled more by feedback

    • Examples?


Classification open closed
Classification…open/closed

  • The stability of the environment (environment refers to object acted on or performance context)

  • Closed motor skill – unchanging environment

  • Open motor skill - changing environment


Classification open closed1
Classification…open/closed

  • The stability of the environment (environment refers to object acted on or performance context)

    • Also used to help analyze how a skill is controlled

    • As the skill becomes more open, it is increasingly likely to be reliant on feedback

  • Examples?
