The study reports an investigation designed to determine the effect of direction of movement on the information capacity of discrete motor responses. Reaction times and movement times were measured for thirty right-handed sixth grade students completing discrete motor tasks in response to a visual stimulus. Times for seven different directions over three indexes of difficulty were compared. Results reconfirmed findings in previous studies that movement time is a linear function of index of difficulty.
