Analogs of models of duration discrimination are here related to the timing of discrete motor responses. The measure of interest is the variability in duration of intervals collected in short interval reproduction tasks. For data from a Morse key-tapping task, it is shown that, taken separately, neither of the models described can completely account for the relation between the mean and the variance of the interresponse intervals.
