Automaticity

The retrieval of information that is triggered by a highly learned (over learned) input-output pairing. Automaticity is reflected through resistance to interference, increased speed, and resistance to forgetting (or better long-term retention).

A knowledge component that has greater strength is likely to yield great automaticity.
