Abstract

Perceptual-cognitive tasks used for both testing and training in sport will benefit from the inclusion and/or emphasis of knowledge base approaches as a key driving mechanism. In particular, training and testing of decision making skill is discussed. The distinction is made between the isolated decision making approach and the tactics and knowledge base approach to action choices. Knowledge base approaches are seen to provide a more sensitive and mechanistic assessment of skill and underlying response selection processes, and are better able to examine individual differences in the progression from action prediction to action control.
