Abstract : This investigation was directed at statistical baseline evaluation of nine tasks for suitability for repeated measures applications to environmental investigations. In the first study, tasks from Moran and Mefferd (1959) were administered to 18 subjects daily for 13 work days (Monday to Friday). In the second study, Carter and Sbisa (1981) computer battery tasks were administered daily to 17 subjects (12 in common with first study) for 15 work days. Examination of the means, variances, interday reliabilities and cross-task correlations led to the recommendation of four tasks for repeated measures applications Vertical Addition (Nv), Perceptual Speed (PS), Grammatical Reasoning (GR), and Flexibility of Closure (FC).
