Scoring+

The following main variables are scored:

  • Perceptual speed: Quantity of work performed.
  • Perceptual accuracy: Quality of work performed.

When assessing the quality of attention, the two variables must always be considered in combination since, for example, a fast working speed combined with many errors is often not advantageous.
