It is reasonable to assume that subjects should take more time to judge a moderately plausible test probe as plausible than a highly plausible test probe. In addition, subjects should be more likely to judge a highly plaus­ ible test probe as plausible than a moderately plausible one. However, when subjects are asked to make a recognition judgment, the time to decide whether a statement was presented should not vary with plausibility unless they are using the plausibility strategy when making recognition judgments.

However, these judgments also increased significantly and systematically with the amount of incorrect partial infonnation accessed, that is, the number of incorrect letters reported. Thus, both correct and wrong partial infonnation seemed to contribute to the enhancement of the FOK. Recog­ nition memory, on the other hand, disclosed a different pattern: The likeli­ hood of correct target recognition increased with the amount of correct partial infonnation, but decreased with the amount of incorrect partial infonnation accessed.
