Application

Assesses reactive stress tolerance, attention and reaction speed in children.
The DTKI is a complex multiple-choice reaction test that constantly requires rapid and varying reactions to quickly changing optical and acoustic stimuli. As a children’s version of the well-established Determination Test (DT) the DTKI combines a measurement method which has proved its success over many years with an innovative and child-friendly mode of presentation.

The level of difficulty depends primarily on the speed with which the stimuli change and on the number of different stimuli and responses which the respondent has to shift between. Stimulus presentation is adaptive, which means that the speed of presentation adapts to the child’s ability. The test is therefore used for investigations in the fields of clinical neuropsychology and sports psychology.

Administration

The child reacts to colored stimuli (colored fish) and acoustic signals (croaking frogs). Reactions are made by pressing the appropriate keys.

Test forms
