Application

Assesses attention and concentration.
These abilities have a major influence on an individual’s performance in both everyday and challenging activities. Because of its significant practical relevance, this test is used in clinical neuropsychology, safety assessments and investigations in the fields of traffic psychology and sports psychology.

Administration

Respondents compare a geometric figure with other geometric figures. They then state whether the comparison figure is identical to one of the other four geometric figures. In the test forms with free working time respondents press different keys to indicate whether the figure is identical with another one or not. In the test forms with fixed working time respondents have a short time window in which to react only if a figure is identical to the comparison figure.

Test forms

S1: Parallel form 1 with free working time
S2: Parallel form 2 with free working time
S3: Parallel form 3 with free working time
S4: Parallel form 1 with fixed presentation time per item
S5: Parallel form 2 with fixed presentation time per item
S8: Parallel form A with fixed time limit
S9: Parallel form B with fixed time limit
S11: Short form with flexible working time

Scoring

The following main variables are scored, depending on the test form:

  • S1, S2, S3, S11
    • Mean time "correct rejection": Measure of selective attention.
  • S4, S5
    • Total "correct reactions”: Measure of working accuracy under time pressure.
    • Total "incorrect reactions”: Measure of working accuracy under time pressure.
    • Total "incorrect non-reactions”: Measure of working accuracy under time pressure.
  • S8, S9
    • Sum “reactions” (correct and incorrect reactions): Measure of processing speed.
    • Percentage “incorrect reactions”: Measure of working accuracy.

1 The “Speed/Accuracy” chart (for S1-S3 and S11) provides a simple overview of the respondent’s way of working. For example, it is easy to see from the chart whether a fast working speed is at the expense of accuracy.
