Effects of Time Limits on Test-Taking Behavior. Research Report 76-2.
Miller, T. W.; Weiss, David J.
Three related experimental studies analyzed rate and accuracy of test response under time-limit and no-time-limit conditions. Test instructions and multiple-choice vocabulary items were administered by computer. Student volunteers received monetary rewards under both testing conditions. In the first study college students were blocked into high- and low-ability groups on the basis of pretest scores. Results for both ability groups showed higher response rates under the time-limit conditions than under no-time-limit conditions. There were no significant differences between time-limit and no-time-limit. (Author)
