Speed of Oral and Written Responding.
Newman, Slater E.; Nicholson, Lawrence R.
Subjects were given three trials to speak and to write as fast as they could both the alphabet and a set of two-digit numbers. The speed or oral responding was approximately 6 syllables per second for letters and 7 syllables per second for digits. The speed for writing was approximately 2 items per second for both digits and letters. Correlations between tasks within the same mode were all significant; correlations between modes on the same task were usually not. Implications for research in verbal learning and memory are discussed. (Author)
