Table 3 Results of the reliability analysis

From: Individual differences in cognitive offloading: a comparison of intention offloading, pattern copy, and short-term memory capacity

Task/measure Test–retest [95% CI] Cronbach’s α [95% CI] Split-half [95% CI]
Session 1 Session 2 Session 1 Session 2
Intention offloading task

Accuracy .78 [.65, .87] .88 [.84, .91] .86 [.79, .89] .71 [.55, .82] .76 [.62, .86]
Pattern copy task      
Openings model window .88 [.81, .93] .95 [.94, .97] .95 [.92, .97] .86 [.78, .91] .91 [.86, .95]
Duration first opening .75 [.61, .84] .95 [.93, .97] .96 [.92, .98] .74 [.60, .83] .85 [.76, .90]
Copied during first opening .82 [.73, .89] .92 [.89, .94] .93 [.89, .95] .80 [.69, .87] .88 [.81, .93]
Trial duration .82 [.72, .89] .95 [.93, .97] .94 [.93, .96] .84 [.74, .90] .84 [.76, .90]
Corsi blocks task      
Capacity .71 [.55, .82]
  1. The Corsi blocks task was adaptive, so that responses within each session were not independent of each other. Thus, Cronbach’s α and split-half reliability were not calculated for this task
