This experiment examined basic properties of the Lahi, a multi-target continuous performance task with three sections, used in R. Feuerstein's Leaming Propensity Assessment Battery. Signal detection theory was used to evaluate performance by undergraduate students on the measure. Results did not identify differences between the three possible multiple targets, when evaluated on their own. There were differences in performance, however, when the order of presenting the targets was changed between the different sections of the task, as well as differences over time for most of the alternate forms of the task. Implications for the clinical utility of this measure for disorders with attention related symptoms discussed.
