Technical Specifications

The Simultaneity Test DIAT-SHIF stems from the classic Stroop test (Stroop, 1935), the Vienna Test System (Whiteside, 2002), and the Test of Variables of Attention (Greenberg et al., 1996). The test-taker is required to accurately follow a ball moving and turning in all directions on the screen while, at the same time, performing a variant of the Stroop test.

  • Evaluated cognitive abilities:Divided attention, inhibition, updating, visual perception, shifting, processing speed, hand-eye coordination, response time.
  • Time allowed:Approximately 60 seconds.
  • Areas of application:Educational Psychology, Clinical Psychology, Neuropsychology, General Medicine and Research.
  • Format:Online Computerized Test (PCs, cell phones, and tablets).
  • Objective:Perform simultaneously to a coordination task and a "Go, No-Go" type task.
  • Instructions:Move the mouse (or the on-screen joystick, if using a touch device) to keep the cursor centered over the ball that moves freely around the screen. At the same time, the name of a color (e.g. "black") is displayed on the screen, and it can be written in the corresponding color (in the example, "black") or in a different color (e.g. "blue"). If the name of the color and the color in which it is written match (the word "black" written in black), the user must press the space bar (or the button on the screen, in case of using a touch screen) and, in the opposite case (the word "black" written in blue), the user must not perform any action.
