The purpose of the experiment was to determine whether a constant information processing rate would occur when subjects in verbal discrimination (VD) learning were presented a mixture of items of different lengths. Forty-two Naval Postgraduate School students served in a VD experiment with a random mixture of 2-, 3-, and 4-word items at presentation rates of i or 5 bits of information per second. Half the items had similar and half, dissimilar words. The VD list had 6 each, of 2-, 3-, and 4-word items resulting in 6 bits of information for the 2-word items, 9.51 bits for the 3- word items, and 12 bits for the 4-word items for an overall presentation load of 27.51 bits of information. The information content of 2- and 3-word items was normalized to agree with the 12-bit base of 4-word items for analysis.
