giving knowledge of result on their performance is once they do the ninety-degree angle, they will hear a beep sound. This can help them recognize that they have reached their goal.

From this study, I will use what I read and see how much of a difference they improve.

Another type of feedback that is quite useful in this case is prescriptive knowledge of performance.

This will hopefully give me the chance to speak to them about my faith and tell them how wonderful our God is.
