Participants will complete a number of card sorting task as quickly as possible. Complete each condition in random order. Each variation will start with the timer saying “Go” and stop when the last card lands on the pile.
Simple Reaction Time (SRT)
Participants will be required to sort all the cards into one pile.
2-Choice Reaction Time (2-CRT)
Participants will be required to sort all the cards into two piles:
4-Choice Reaction Time (4-CRT)
Participants will be required to sort all the cards into four piles:
HEART DIAMONDS SPADES CLUBS
8-Choice Reaction Time (8-CRT)
Participants will be required to sort all the cards into eight piles:
2 – 7 HEART
2 – 7 DIAMONDS
2 – 7 SPADES
2 – 7 CLUBS
8 – A HEART
8 – A DIAMONDS
8 – A SPADES
8 – A CLUBS
1. What is Reaction Time? What does reaction time indicate and what are some of the preparation events that occur during reaction time?
2.Describe three task and situational factors, other than the number of response choices, which influence reaction time (RT).
3. What is the cost-benefit trade-off involved in biasing the preparation of an action in the expectation of making one of several possible responses? Give a motor skill performance example to illustrate this trade-off
