Abstract

Date Presented 03/27/20

This study examined the association between total time to complete the WCPA and the number of cognitive strategies used and total errors on the test. Results suggest that more time taken on the WCPA may increase the number of cognitive strategies used, but it may not necessarily result in improved overall test performance. These findings support the importance of understanding factors that contribute to successful performance and interpretation of WCPA scores.
