Absolute scoring method for OSpan and SymSpan are reported. Antisaccade and Stroop ACC cost data are reported in terms of proportions. The tasks that have smaller scores associated with better performance are as follows: Anti-saccade RT cost, Anti-saccade ACC cost, Sart, PVT, CVLT Intrusions, CVLT Repetitions. These reversals (smaller scores = better performance) are denoted in the table with ^ to assist with clarity. For all other tasks (OSpan, SymSpan, Raven's, Nelson-Denny, CVLT correct), higher scores are associated with better performance.
