When participants hear auditory probes during the composition of a text (the primary task), they are asked to say 'stop' as quickly as possible whenever they detect such a probe (RT secondary task). A voice-operated relay interfaced with a computer recorded the time from the presentation of the probe to the detection response in milliseconds.

The probes are distributed in a random interval with a mean interval of once every 10 s and a range of 5 s to 15 s. During the composition, probes are distributed with a mean interval of once every 30 s and a range of 15 s to 45 SI. 1 Note that Kellogg's procedure samples the writing processes only about every 30 s, whereas Levy and Ransdell's procedure allows a much finer temporal resolution (every 1 s).
