    Motor performance
  35. To be an effective learner orphanage practitioner, you must be able to ask the right questions
    Who are you teaching and her abilities, experiences, and motovation

    What is the task/goal

    Where will it take place (context, similar to practice)
  36. Interval of time between 1 stimuli and associated response
    Simple reaction time
  37. Time that passes from presentation of stimulus until response initiated
    Reaction time
  38. Interval between beginning of one of several stimuli and one of several responses
    Choice reaction time
  39. What kind of performer can overcome many things including the disadvantages of more stimulus response choices and low stimulus response compatibility?
  40. Degree to which the relationship between a stimulus and an associated response is natural
    Response compatibility
