Visual Capacity Test
Assesses cognitive abilities related to width of field of view.
Analyzes the results and identifies possible cognitive deterioration. Give it a try!
This test was inspired by the Useful Field of Vision (UFOV) test and other neuropsychological assessment batteries that measure the width of field of view. The test evaluates the amount of visual information that an individual receives when someone appears in front of them. In order to perform this task, the user must pay attention, as the task will require both attention and width of field of view to get the best result.
- Evaluated cognitive abilities:Width of Field of View.
- 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: Pay attention to to the first image that appears on the screen and predict which of the three following images will appear on the next screen.
- Instructions:An image of an object will appear on the screen for a few seconds. You must memorize which of the three images previously appeared on the screen. Each image appears for less and less time, so the user will have less time to observe the image and reproduce it in the next screen.
