Words preamble

I'LL READ A SET OF 10 WORDS AND ASK YOU TO RECALL AS MANY AS YOU CAN. WE HAVE PURPOSELY MADE THE LIST LONG SO THAT IT WILL BE DIFFICULT FOR ANYONE TO RECALL ALL THE WORDS -- MOST PEOPLE RECALL JUST A FEW. PLEASE LISTEN CAREFULLY AS I READ THE SET OF WORDS BECAUSE I CANNOT REPEAT THEM. WHEN I FINISH, I WILL ASK YOU TO RECALL ALOUD AS MANY OF THE WORDS AS YOU CAN, IN ANY ORDER. IS THIS CLEAR?

PROBE AS NEEDED FOR UNDERSTANDING OF TASK. READ THE ITEMS AT A SLOW, STEADY RATE AS THEY COME UP ON THE SCREEN, APPROXIMATELY ONE WORD EVERY TWO SECONDS

IF R REFUSES DURING OR AFTER THE PREAMBLE AND BEFORE ANY WORDS ARE READ, ENTER [CTRL-R] AT THIS SCREEN

D104 word list assignment

SELECT CONTINUE AFTER THE LAST WORD

USER NOTE: ONE OF FOUR WORD LISTS WAS RANDOMLY ASSIGNED TO BE READ TO THE RESPONDENT. THE FIRST LIST OF WORDS CONSISTED OF WORDS 1-10, THE SECOND LIST CONSISTED OF WORDS 11-20, ETC. THE ASSIGNMENT WAS MADE LONGITUDINALLY, SO EACH RESPONDENT IS ASSIGNED A DIFFERENT SET OF WORDS IN EACH OF FOUR SUCCESSIVE WAVES OF DATA COLLECTION. THE ASSIGNMENT IS ALSO MADE SO THAT TWO RESPONDENTS IN THE SAME HOUSEHOLD (I.E., SPOUSES OR PARTNERS OF ONE ANOTHER) ARE NOT ASSIGNED THE SAME SET OF WORDS IN THE SAME OR IN ADJACENT WAVES.
