Detailed Description+

Assesses obtaining an overview as part of attention performance.
A quick and accurate grasp of complex visual situations is particularly important when driving. Because test presentation is adaptive, respondents are neither over- nor under-challenged and can therefore perform at their best. The test is used in traffic psychology and in safety assessments of professional drivers for personnel psychology purposes.
