Although once given scant treatment, the importance attached to “mental speed” in providing improved understanding and measurement of intelligence is growing. The veracity of this statement is evidenced by a number of observations. For instance, several broad factors representing mental speed abilities are currently incorporated within two important, structural models of cognitive abilities: Gf-Gc (see, e.g., Horn & Noll, 1994) and three-stratum (e.g., Carroll, 1993) theory. With respect to the latter of these conceptualizations, Carroll (1993) notes, “If any broad taxonomic classification of cognitive ability factors were to be formulated, in fact, it might be one based on the distinction between level [accuracy-based ...
