Introduction

"Discuss the role of feedback in the teaching of skills" " When I saw the finish line I felt excited, even more when I saw the time. I knew the world record was only a few strides away so I began to pump every last bit of effort I had left." (Paula Radcliffe-The Times) Feedback is the information that tells us about movements we made. (Applying Psychology to sport, Barbara Woods 1998) Towards the end of World War 2 a scientist, Norbert Wiener was developing the concepts of feedback-loop control systems.

Feedback is split into two major categories: * Intrinsic * Extrinsic Intrinsic feedback This type of feedback is the 'sensory information that arises a natural consequence of producing a movement'.

This is giving the athlete time to think about their performance, feedback is given in time-"delayed". * Positive: Praising the athlete for their actions, hopefully repeating it in the future. * Negative: giving this type of feedback informs the athlete they are doing something wrong, following it should be constructive criticism for improvement to follow. ...read more.
