Word Repetition Span task may consist of word repetition or non-word repetition. Both spans begin at List length 2 and ceiling at List length 5. For this task, the computer will say a string of words or non-words for the participant to repeat in order. The clinician then copies the participant’s responses in the order they were offered. This task assesses the ability to repeat single words and single non-words. Depending on the accuracy and types of errors, it is sensitive to deficits of input and output processing.
