The rpbs are Pearson product moment correlations of the measures with Role. The difference score means were compared with 0.00 using two-tailed t tests. The value of 0.00 represents a difference of 0.00 between the mean relevant and control-question responses. Significant negative means indicate that the relevant-question responses were larger than the control-question responses; significant positive means indicate the reverse. SD = standard deviation.

* p < .05.
