|Title:||Differences and similarities between the performance of a fundamental skill in gymnastics for three cohorts: Children, young adults and older adults||Contributor(s):||Haynes, John Ewen (author); Miller, Judith Anne (author)||Publication Date:||2007||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/10374||Abstract:||An examination of data for a basic skill taught in gymnastics, namely the forward roll, identified three sequences. These sequences were termed the beginning, bridging and end. Within each sequence a number of indicators were delineated, which were further subdivided into descriptors (Haynes et al., 2005). This paper presents an analysis, using the descriptors as a means of comparison, for three cohorts: children, young adults and older adults (n = 117), who performed the forward roll. Results show both similarities and differences between each cohort. Findings are presented in graphical format, as well as an ensuing discussion. There are pedagogical implications, especially for the way teachers engage their students from across different age groups.||Publication Type:||Conference Publication||Conference Name:||AARE 2006 International Education Research Conference: Engaging Pedagogies, Adelaide, Australia, 26th - 30th November, 2006||Conference Details:||AARE 2006 International Education Research Conference: Engaging Pedagogies, Adelaide, Australia, 26th - 30th November, 2006||Source of Publication:||AARE 2006 International Education Research Conference Proceedings, p. 1-11||Publisher:||AARE: Australian Association for Research in Education||Place of Publication:||Australia||ISSN:||1324-9320||Field of Research (FOR):||130303 Education Assessment and Evaluation||Peer Reviewed:||Yes||HERDC Category Description:||E1 Refereed Scholarly Conference Publication||Other Links:||http://www.aare.edu.au/06pap/hay06512.pdf
