**Original citation.** Farrell, S. (2008). Multiple roles for time in short-term memory: Evidence from serial recall of order and timing. Journal of Experimental Psychology: Learning, Memory, and Cognition, 34(1), 128. **Target of replication.** The result we have selected as our target for replication is the finding that instructing participants to group items induces a temporal gap between the groups both when trying to recall the order of the items and when trying to recall the timing of the items. **A priori replication criteria.** A successful replication would find the presence of an interaction in a repeated-measures, 2 (grouped vs. ungrouped) x 6 (serial position) ANOVA to determine if grouping had any significant effect on subjects’ latencies **Materials, Data, and Report** Study materials ([code][1] and [readme][2]), [raw data][3], the [analysis script][4], and the [full report][5] all appear in the files section of this node. **Conclusions.** The present replication of Study 2 from Farrell (2008) successfully replicated the original finding: that asking participants to group stimuli alters the timing they report, even when subjects are asked to report timing faithfully. The confirmatory analysis revealed a significant interaction between grouping instruction and serial position, as well as a significant difference in the deviations of the fourth latency from the predictions of a polynomial fit in the ungrouped and grouped conditions.
