The purpose of this study was to assess the effectiveness of Comprehensive Achievement Monitoring (CAM), using teacher-directed diagnosis of feedback in promoting achievement in girls gymnastics as compared to using Comprehensive Achievement Monitoring (CAM) with student-directed use of feedback. Focusing on performance objectives in four areas of girls' and women's gymnastics - the balance beam, the uneven parallel bars, the vault (horse), and tumbling - a measurement instrument was constructed, and feedback methods were used to enhance student learning.

A computer-assisted evaluation program, Comprehensive Achievement Monitoring (CAM), was adapted to the structure of the psychomotor instrument. This was a pioneer effort in using the CAM system to evaluate psychomotor performance objectives in a physical education activity.
