Running Span Task

Good afternoon,

I'm trying to find total possible RunSpanScore but I'm struggling to locate the info, I found on one previous academic paper it was 99 but I couldn't find out whether this was an altered task. The Running Span Task I used hasn't been altered or adapted from the Millisecond version in any way.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Kind regards,

Andrew

/runspanscore is defined as the sum of all correctly recalled targets in sets with at least 1 distractor.

In the test phase, there are 4 levels of N targets (3, 4, 5, 6) x 3 numbers of distractors (0, 1, 2). The sets with zero distractors don't go into the score, so the maximum achievable (all targets in sets with one or two distractors correctly recalled) is 36.
