This task contains four kinds of test ; MOLDtrials. In Same-Context-Presented trials (QUEEN-STA 26 D. V. Howard HAN___), the word stem is tested with the word with which it was paired during study. In Different-Context-Presented trials (QUEEN-HAN_ _: MOLD-STA ), the word stem is tested with a stimulus from a different studied pair. On Same-Context-Not-Presented and Different-Context-NotPresented trials, the test items had not been presented at all during study. We assess the degree of implicit item memory by subtracting the percent of correct word-stem completions on Different-Context-Not-Presented trials from that on Different-Context-Presented, since this reflects the advantage conferred by previous study of the item.
