Abstract

Half a century of intermittent interest in the topic has demonstratedmoderate but reliable relationships between reaction times (RTs), measured by special tasks, and intelligence test scores. This paper raises the possibility that similar relationships might be found for the item response times which can be routinely gathered using computerised versions of ability tests. An exploratory analysis of a general abilityscreening test by the author, based on the responses of 1,465 engineering apprenticeship applicants, is outlined. The results indicate thatthe response time measures are reliable, and though the simpler relationships between response times and scores did not show the same patterns as have been found for RTs, some of the analyses did support theoretical predictions based on RT work. Therefore, further exploration ofroutinely collected response times seems justified, though the methods of analyses will need to be adapted to the cruder measures which arethe result of more elaborate and varied cognitive processes.
