I would now like to see how quickly you can work through this list, crossing out the P's and W's. Start at the top left where the arrow is and work along the row from left to right, then go to the beginning of the next row and work from left to right again, like reading a page. Carry on this way crossing out any P's and W's with one mark of the pencil like this. (Demonstrate). Carry on until I tell you to stop. Work as quickly and as accurately as you can.

Nurse: Turn to letter search (page 4 of paper test booklet). Nurse: Set your stop watch for one minute. Tell the respondent to start and stop at the correct moment. Record whether the letter search was attempted. Code one only
