As a part of research of background of beneficial effects of an unskilled model for motor learning, this work was conducted to identify two objectives. The first was to examine eye movement difference during observation of skilled or unskilled finger coordination tasks. The skilled performance showed smoothness, while the unskilled performance exhibited clumsiness. The second was to test a difference in subjective impression regarding the two models. Seven young adults participated in this study. Participants’ eye movements were measured during observation of unskilled and skilled model for 30 seconds. After the observation, they executed a ball rotation task. Before and after the execution, the participants were asked which model was more efficient in teaching the ball rotation task. The results showed that there was no eye movement difference during observation of the two models. After the observation, the unskilled model was significantly more efficient based on the participants’ choice. In conclusion, a beneficial effect of the unskilled observation is not related to eye behavior. However, taking into consideration the participants’ choice, in the process of acquiring motor skills, the unskilled model may be related to some cognitive processes which do not involve eye movement.
