Abstract:
This conference paper discusses a case study of 7 coaches and 5 coach/judges who viewed ten handspring vaults whilst earing an ASL 501 eye-tracker. The results provide evidence that to suggest that coaches and coach/judges produce similar search patterns when judging performance using pre-determined criteria. This has implications for perceptual training and the development of training aids where, despite coaches and judges performing separate roles, eye patterns can be trainined in order to produce a more effective scan pattern for error detection.
