Effects of speed vs accuracy instructions and field dependence on college students' digit-symbol matching performance.
Perceptual and motor skills
Correct digit-symbol matches of 68 women were significantly higher than those of 26 men. Speed instructions led to higher scores than those for accuracy or a neutral approach. Field dependence (Group Embedded Figures Test scores) interacted with instructions and field independent subjects scored higher when instructed to be accurate.
