ABSTRACT

This study aimed to examine the effect of using strobe-image feedback on hurdle sprint times in physical education classes. The participants were 57 male students aged between 16 and 17 years. They were divided into the following two groups: strobe-image learning (SL) group (n = 25), wherein the participants set practice tasks based on strobe-image feedback that allowed them to view their movements, and group learning (GL) group (n = 32), wherein groups of three or four students examined the movements of a target learner in the group and provided feedback to set the subsequent practice tasks. A two-way analysis of variance revealed that the main effect of the groups (SL and GL) was not significant (P > 0.05, effect size (ES) = 0.03), whereas the main effect of time (pre-test and post-test) was significant (P < 0.05, ES = 0. 36). Furthermore, the interaction was significant (P < 0.05, ES = 0.24), that is, a difference between pre- and post-test in the SL group was noted (P < 0.05, ES = 0.24). Therefore, the time of the 50-m hurdle run was significantly improved in the post-test in the SL group. Unlike the GL group, the feedback guided the SL group to make "hurdling without jumping too high" their main practice task, which presumably resulted in the shorter 50-m hurdling times and suggested that strobe-image feedback could provide effective, rational information for athletic improvement.
