The senior author has previously shown that the O'Connor Block Test requires at least four time-limit trials of two minutes each to obtain a reliability of .80. A total of six trials are required to bring the reliability up to .85. If the number of subjects to be tested is large this procedure requires a large amount of the examiner's time and somewhat limits the usefulness of the test.
