Abstract : The results of the study give some limited support to the notion that fluency under conditions requiring response selection may be related to performance in verbal paired-associate learning. The p-word test scores produced a borderline significance value in relation to CVC pair learning scores, and the extreme groups on the p-word test differed signfiicantly on word pair learning scores. The S-L test showed no relation to learning scores. The similar-words test showed a relation of CVC pair learning scores but not to word pair learning scores. (Author)
