 count Time (usually in minutes)   1. count 2. divided by 3. time (usually in minutes)
Term
 3.25   Frequency RC = (formula)
Definition
 total possible count time (usually in minutes)   1. total possible count 2. divided by 3. time (usually in minutes)

Term
 3.29   in DISCONTINUOUS interval frequency, timing is
Definition
 suspended for interruptions
Term
 3.30   Change frequencies to % correct by...(formula)
Definition
 correct rate x 100 correct rate + error rate 1. correct frequency 2. times 100 3. divided by 4. correct frequency 5. plus 6. error frequency
Term
 3.31   change % to frequency by
Definition
 (it cannot be done unless time is known)
Term
 3.32   Given % correct, % error must be =
Definition
 100 - (% correct)   1. 100 2. minus 3. percent correct
Term
 3.33   Given correct frequency, error frequency =
Definition
 anything (they are independent)
Term

Definition
 1. time 2. between 3. opportunity to move and 4. start of movement
Term
 3.35   Frequency to START
Definition
 Count latency (usually in minutes)   1. count 2. divided by 3. latency (usually in minutes)
Term

 count duration (usually in minutes)   1. count 2. divided by 3. duration (usually in minutes)
Term
 3.38   frequency to START AND DO
