This effect was produced at two levels of analysis – participant-level, and stimulus item-level. In our replication with high power and a similar sample, we partially replicated the original results. We conducted both participant-level and item-level analyses and found that there was no significant evidence for a switch cost at the participant-level, but there was a switch cost when the data was analyzed at an item level. Lastly, there was an unexpected interaction between switch cost and stimulus type (i.e., word or nonword) when the data was analyzed at the participant level but not at the stimulus item level. Participants read words more slowly after a switch, but read nonwords at a similar speed regardless of whether there was a switch.</p>
