Clinical work and research activity using memory tests typically use measures of recall. While these measures are useful, they may restrict the nature of memory assessments. A memory test was developed to record encoding and recall times. Analyses were then conducted to determine whether these encoding and recall times related to recall performance. Results indicated that encoding time and recall time related significantly to recall performance. Data also revealed that while the strength of the relationship between encoding time and recall errors generally remained constant, the relationship between recall time and recall errors decreased as task demands increased.
