The relative effectiveness of using adaptive and nonadaptive fixed strategies to facilitate acquisition of a physically complex psychomotor skill was investigated. In addition, task and practice difficulty levels were studied. Sixty subjects were each given pre- and posttraining tests and the data were evaluated by analysis of covariance. Results suggest no significant difference between fixed and adaptive techniques for the skill studied. The results are discussed and recommendations made. Author
