Abstract: This study investigated the effects of participation in competitive sport on academic performance of secondary school students. The variables of the study included sex, type of school, social economic status. RUNNING HEAD: EFFECTS OF INCREASING AND DECREASING PHYSIOLOGICAL AROUSAL.

    The nature of motivation and learning strategy use is vital to improving student learning outcomes. This study was intended to explore the motivational beliefs and learning strategy use by Liberian junior and senior high school students in connection with their academic performance. It also solicited students’ self-reports about presumed factors hindering their by: 4. The 'performance movement', especially in the US and other 'anglo' countries, has all too often relied on simplistic, overly rational, value-free and linear assumptions about what performance means in a public service context. Dr. Radin effectively challenges all these assumptions and shows the paradoxes that underpin by:

      The performance of the Garden is one instigated by the designer but implemented by the subject—a subject that is both a human and non-human agent. It is the theater of life that continually re-creates interpretations, performs the work, and subverts the form. This study examined the effects of vocal and non-vocal background music on the task performance of introverts and extraverts on a memorization task. Prior to the memorization task, participants (N = 38) completed Eysenck's Personality Inventory in order to determine introversion and extraversion. In the presence of either vocal or non-vocal music, participants memorized .

Get this from a library. Effects of competition and subject's sex on performance of a movement time task. [Howard H Taylor]. Competition has often been implicated as a means to improve effort-based learning and attention.

Two experiments examined the effects of competition on effort and memory. In Experiment 1, participants completed a physical effort task in which they were rewarded for winning an overall percentage, or for winning a competition they believed was against another by: 8.

We want to estimate the performance level of the criterion task, with the relatively permanent effects of learning separated from any temporary performance effects.

Transfer concerns how performance on the transfer task is influenced by practice on some other task. indicated that endurance performance was greater during competition. Enjoyment fully mediated whereas effort and heart rate variability partially mediated the effects of competition on performance.

In the final experiment, participants undertook a handgrip endurance task in individual and team competitions. Endurance performance was better. Lohse, Sherwood, and Healy () found that an external focus of attention (FOA) improved performance in a dart-throwing task and reduced the time taken between throws, but using the time between trials as a measure of preparation time is relatively crude.

Thus, the current experiment analyzed how FOA affects accuracy and pre-movement time in an isometric force Cited by: The Effect of Music on Performance of a Task Abstract In order to investigate whether music affected performance of a task, and experimental technique was used, variables were manipulated and data recorded.

The aim of this study was to investigate whether different music styles affected the performance of a task. The effects of competitive treatments on performance, interest, and retention were examined with the use of a ten-day vocabulary task administered to 2, sixth graders. The four major objectives of this experiment were: (1) to examine educational competition within a learning, as opposed to a testing, situation; (2) to examine competition using an experimental design, task, Author: Margaret M.

However, the combination of competition and cooperation (intergroup competition) consistently led to. significant differences in endurance time during a cycle ergometer task at 75% VO2max between stimulative music and control conditions.

In one well-designed research, Pujol and Langenfeld () assessed the effects of music on performance in the super-maxi-mal Wingate Anaerobic Test. The results showed that there were no significant differ.

Sex, Affect, and Academic Performance: It's Not What You Think Abstract The academic impact of serious depression among college students is beginning to receive increased attention in the research literature.

In contrast, we know very little about the affect of mild depression, or dysphoria, on academic performance. This study examined the interactive effects of competition, rewards, and goal difficulty on task performance and goal commitment.

Students were assigned to one of eight experimental conditions and participated in a computerized anagram solution task. Rewards significantly increased performance, especially along with difficult goals.

Introduction. Competition is a common feature in multiple domains of society, such as education, business and sport.

It is well established that competition influences our performance of tasks ranging from motor skills (e.g., Stanne et al., ) to academic tests (e.g., Belfield and Levin, ).However, the precise mechanisms that underlie competition induced changes in Cited by: Since the beginning of the century, feedback interventions (FIs) produced negative--but largely ignored--effects on performance.

A meta-analysis ( effect sizes; 23, observations) suggests that FIs improved performance on average (d) but that over one-third of the FIs decreased performance.

This finding cannot be explained by sampling error, feedback sign, or Cited by: The aims of the present study were to elucidate the effects of competitive situatioin on heart rate and task performance in the mirror drawing test.
