Abstract

This study examines that as time limitations increase, correct answers on a test increase. Thirty undergraduates, 18 females and 12 males (mean age = 23), were randomly assigned into 3 different time limit groups - 8, 10, and 20 minutes. Participants were given 3 different passages with corresponding questions to complete under their assigned time limit. The correct answers were compared through ANOVA (F (3, 18) = 8.52, n2 = .54, large effect). Therefore, as the time limit increased, the amount of correct answers increased. This should be taken into consideration so students perform to their optimal level while testing.
