The tests were given under two conditions: Timed and Untimed.
Ninety-six undergraduate college students participated: 48 students with LD and 48 students without LD. The two groups were matched in several areas including: Gender (25 males, 23 females), and Race (47 Caucasians, 1 Hispanic).
Two tests were administered: American College Test (ACT), Nelson-Denny Reading Test (1981 edition).
Testing condition had a significant effect on test performance, but primarily for students with LD. In the timed testing condition, the ACT and Nelson-Denny raw scores for students with LD were significantly lower than the scores of students without LD. However, there was no difference between the two groups' test scores in the untimed condition.
