Abstract: The processes underpinning a specific 'idea', namely, how the assessment of the quality of movement within the sensorimotor mode of learning can be undertaken within a Structure of Observed Learning Outcomes (SOLO) framework, is described. The sensorimotor skill under examination is the 'forward roll' in gymnastics. Firstly, a review of the pertinent literature was undertaken. This involved a search for the relevant fields of study and reporting the trends and findings, as well as the identification of a conceptual framework. Secondly, data were collected, in the form of digital videotapes, for three cohorts: children, young adults and older adults (N = 117) as they performed the forward roll. These data were analysed, which resulted in the development of a new framework, for the purpose of measuring the quality of the sensorimotor skill under investigation. Thirdly, the underlying construct of the new framework was verified by applying the Australian Council for Educational Research's (ACER) Quest statistical technique, commonly known as Rasch. Finally, using the underpinning principles established during data analysis, a re-examination of the data from a SOLO perspective is currently being undertaken.
