AbstractTo improve student performance, teachers need to evaluate the developmental level of the child and to deliver feedback statements that correspond with the student’s ability to process the information delivered. Therefore, feedback aligned with the developmental level of the child (aligned developmental feedback – ADF) is sometimes considered to be the most appropriate type of feedback for improving student learning. It is assumed that the provision of ADF is beneficial in bringing about improvement in the learning of motor skills and subsequently in performance. However, the extent of the influence of ADF on motor performance remains unclear. This study examined the influence of ADF on students’ performance of the overhand throw for force in a naturalistic physical education setting.
