DISC1 POST 2 AND 3
Iagree with the student’s definition of the psychomotor skills, andthe examples given. Psychomotor skills are those skills that developdue to the constant use of the skills. In addition, these skills areutilised according to the performance of the specified obligations(Dickand Carey, 2015).For example, they may be utilised by doing the same task on the dailybasis to the extent that the individual become so familiar that he orshe can perform the task with minimum concentration. Psychomotorskills require both mental and physical activities. This is similarto what the student has defined psychomotor skills. All the examplesgiven are cultivated through repeated performance over time.
However,some the student does not correctly match all the domain of learningwith the correct skills. For instance, the use of appropriatelanguage in an informal conversation in the workplace, and to track ahurricane using both longitude and latitude requires intellectualskills. In addition, to name the countries in the European Unionrequires verbal information. Nevertheless, to perform a backhandspring in gymnastics requires psychomotor skills and to perform agoal analysis requires intellectual skills. Therefore, in this two,the student has correctly matched them.
Iagree with the professor evaluation of analysis. The analysis phaseinvolves research, and its primary objective is to determine the needfor training and their uses in training development (Dave,1970).The element of the analysis is need assessment, job, and targetaudience analysis.
Iagree with the professor’s definition of the design phase. In otherwords, this is the planning stage of instructional systemdevelopment. Similar to the professor, design phase develops thelearning objective, as well as identify steps to perform a task.
Themajor objective of the development phase is to translate designs intotraining materials. It involves course development. Therefore, Idisagree with the professor.
Theimplementation phase involves training delivery. I agree with theprofessor that implementation involves creating a management plan forconducting training, as well as conducting the training itself.
Thepurpose of evaluation in instruction system development is to ensurethat training stays on track and safeguard the training goals. Iagree with the professor that evaluation involves review andevaluation of every phase.
