Assess your estimation, visual scanning, and auditory memory skills.
Detect possible cognitive alterations.
This test was inspired by the class TOMM (Test of Memory Malingering). It assesses the user's precision to place a stimulus where it was previously seen. In the test, the user's eyes must be closed when it is their turn. Precision and perception will be lower when there is no visual reference. It is important to visually memorize the stimulus presented and remember it as closely as possible.
- Evaluated cognitive abilities:Visual short-term memory, visual scanning, and estimation.
- Time allowed:Between approximately 60 and 70 seconds.
- Areas of application: Educational Psychology, Clinical Psychology, Neuropsychology, and General Medicine.
- Format: Online Computerized Test (PCs, cell phones, tablets).
- Objective: Estimate the position of each object on the screen while you keep your eyes closed.
- Instructions:At the beginning of the test you will see a group of stimuli (wheels). Remember the position that each wheel is in. When you're ready, estimate the position of each stimuli clicking the mouse in the exact spot.
