Information Feedback for Skill Acquisition : Instantaneous Knowledge of Results Degrades Learning

  title={Information Feedback for Skill Acquisition : Instantaneous Knowledge of Results Degrades Learning},
  author={Stephan P. Swinnen and Diane E. Nicholson},
The role of acquired error-detection capabilities in skill learning was investigated by manipulating the delay of knowledge of results (KR). Compared with delayed feedback, instantaneous KR should be detrimental to the learning of error-detection capabilities because it should tend to block spontaneous subjective evaluation of response-produced feedback. Weaker error-detection capabilities should then be evident on delayed no-KR retention tests. During acquisition, one group of subjects… CONTINUE READING
