Abstract:

A speeded two-alternative computerized vocabulary test was constructed which yields both speed and level scores, but which takes considerably less time for administration than the ASVAB Word Knowledge test 7 vs 11 minutes. The level scores from the vocabulary test yielded higher validities than the Word Knowledge test for five paired-associates learning tasks included in an experimental battery, and the vocabulary speed latency scores proved to be useful in predicting individual differences in performance deterioration under conditions of information overload.
