Students' recording accuracy in the reciprocal and the self-check teaching styles in physical education
The aim of the study was to record students' recording accuracy when they practised with the reciprocal and the self-check styles in physical education and examine whether recording accuracy contributed to students' performance. Participants were 48 fifth- and sixth-grade students who were randomly assigned to 3 experimental groups (reciprocal style, self-check style, sequential use of the reciprocal and the self-check styles). The results showed that students were moderately accurate in peer- and self-recording with a tendency to overestimate their performance. No difference among the 3 experimental groups in recording accuracy was found. Students who received more accurate feedback outperformed in the chest pass test those who received less accurate feedback. The results are discussed with reference to the use of the reciprocal and the self-check styles and the development of self-regulated learning in physical education. © 2012 Copyright Taylor and Francis Group, LLC.
