Interrelations of Orienting Responses, Response Latency and Stimulus Choice in Children's Learning. Research Report No. 52.
Turnure, James E.
Response latency data from two studies of 30 5-to 7-year-old and 50 3 to- 4-year-old children were analyzed to assess the interrelations of response latencies with previously reported orienting response data and standard learning data. Ss in the first study were tested on an oddity task in three distraction conditions (mirror, sound, and control), and Ss in the second study were assigned to noise, sound, and control conditions. Statistical analyses indicated significant relationships between response latencies and both trials to criterion and total number of correct scores. Multiple correlations in both studies indicated that the combination of response latency and glancing measures was a more adequate and efficient predictor of learning than either measure by itself.
