Abstract

This research examines how college athletes compare to college students under a time pressure situation while taking a working memory-based test. Using a between-subjects design, 24 participants, including 12 males and 12 females (M = 21 years, SD = 1.57) were randomly assigned to one of three different time pressure groups; high, medium or low. In each time pressure group the same memory-based test was given. In the high time pressure group the college athletes performed significantly better than the college students. These results suggest that college athletes perform better than college students under high time pressure.
