This study was conducted to examine the effects of positive specific feedback and positive general feedback on the bowling scores of subjects enrolled in two beginning bowling classes. Experimental groups were formed from two intact bowling classes, and a group of fifteen volunteers who made up the control group. The PSF group which contained twenty-eight subjects, was provided with positive specific feedback throughout the course of the study. The PGF group which contained thirty-five subjects, was provided with positive general feedback throughout the course of the study. Subjects were administered a pretest at the start of the study which consisted of the average score obtained after completing four games of bowling. Following the pretest, subjects in the PSF and PGF groups received eleven sessions of bowling instruction and twelve sessions of bowling competition. Subjects in the control group received no bowling instruction or practice. At the completion of the study subjects were administered a post-test which consisted of the average score obtain after completing tour games of bowling.
