The researcher sought to verify the effect of Murder's strategy on cognitive achievement and learning some basic skills with the tape tool in rhythmic gymnastics by using the experimental approach with two equal experimental and control groups with pre and post tests on a sample of (30) students chosen in a systematic random way from the research community that represented fourth-stage students in the College of Physical Education and Sports Sciences for Girls - University of Baghdad, and after applying the educational units of the strategy and processing the data that it obtained and its access to the results, analysis and discussion, it concluded with the following: The method used by the subject teacher has an effective effect on improving cognitive achievement and learning some basic skills with the tape tool among the students. This was shown by the differences between the pre and post tests of the experimental and control groups. The experimental group outperformed the control group in the post tests.
The researcher recommends the following: The need to use information processing strategies, including the Merder strategy, to improve cognitive achievement and learn basic rhythmic gymnastics skills among female students. And the need to conduct similar research dealing with the cognitive aspects of the other stages and the basic skills of the rest of the subjects.
