Introduction :

Cognition is "the mental action or process of acquiring knowledge and understanding


through thought, experience, and the senses". ]1[

The term cognitive functioning encompasses a variety of skills and abilities, including
intellectual capacity, attention and concentration, processing speed, language and
communication, visual-spatial abilities, and memory. ]2[

In this test we will test the ability of the person to learning of repetition and focus , and
we will use his way to find out the ability of the person to distribution of cards character
alphabet on the boards of the distribution of a given for this characters

1
Method :
At the beginning of this test one group member distributed letters cards on the board number 1 and
another member is calculates the time by using a ( stop watch ) and writing it on the form
they do the same thing for forms number 2 and 3 , they rebated this for 16 times

Conclusion:
the relationship between x and y linear inverse relationship and by calculating R2 it turns out that there is a
strong correlation between the number of trails and the time.
We conclude that the greater the number of repetitions ( trails ) increased, the less time to accomplish the
task.
