increased motivation. Increases in student engagement have led to increases in student performance. 19 Therefore, we believe targeting components of motivation and active learning will lead to an increase in student engagement, facilitating an increase in student performance (Figure  1 ).

achievement, a concern for teacher effectiveness largely is embedded in the national standards and assessment movements designed to hold states, districts, schools, and teachers accountable for student performance on designated outcomes ( Rink, 2013 ).

This article describes the movement tasks (Rink, 1985) in which students engaged during a 14-lesson volleyball unit in an eighth-grade physical education class, and the differential motor skill responses of high- and low-skilled target students during the practice of these tasks. Audio and videotaped records were made of each lesson. Analysis focused on the identification of the movement tasks that were verbally presented by the teacher during the lessons, the determination of students’ level of engagement in these tasks, and the frequency and rate of motor skill responses/successful motor skill responses during task practice for three high- and three low-skilled students. Thirteen major movement tasks were identified that formed a simple to complex progression of activities. A high level of consistent student engagement in tasks was observed, as well as differential performance outcomes for students of high/low skill levels. The results reveal the complexity of providing appropriate instruction for different skill levels in a class. Implications for research and teacher education programs are discussed.

The extent to which this occurs is a function of the consequences of the teachers’ behaviors. Teaching

However, student performance, whether they were in the HFZ or not, had a significant role on the attribution dimension scores for both the

In past research with one loop-strap manipulated to unexpectedly fail and require a backup device, experienced athletic trainers took an average of 80–99 s to remove the facemask. 12 Compared to these norms, the student performance in the current study approximates

this pilot study was to explore the effectiveness of the MTR program in improving both academically struggling and achieving student performances on a sight word test. We hypothesize that after participating in a school-year MTR program, the academically struggling students will achieve performance in

Because participants served as their own control, the within-subject design ensured that we would eliminate between-condition variance in exam performance. Student performance on in-class exam application questions linked to the two CS conditions served as
