  1. * 'clearly identified the TSS' included subjects who gave either a Factually Correct TSS Detail or a Myth TSS Detail
  2. 1 = statistically significant for 'yes' to recall probe (χ2, p < 0.001) for frequency distribution on this variable within Column 1
  3. 2 = statistically significant for % 'yes' to recall probe who named the TSS (χ2, p < 0.05) for frequency distribution on this variable within Column 2
  4. 3 = statistically significant for % 'yes' to recall probe who named or most likely identified the TSS (χ2, p ≤ 0.05) for frequency distribution on this variable within Column 3
  5. 4 = statistically significant for recognition probe (χ2, p < 0.05) for frequency distribution on this variable within Column 4
