A simple evaluation:
Below expectation – movements are awkward and uneven, there is little consistency between two or more attempts and the skill is performed below game speed.
At expectation – At least 50% or more of the attempts are completed in one smooth movement, are at game speed and appear to be natural (second nature and free flowing).
Above expectation – At least 90% or more of the attempts are completed in one smooth movement, are at game speed and appear to be natural (second nature and free flowing).
