    Detailed Description+

    Assesses the ability to estimate the speed and direction of movement of objects. Space/time orientation is extremely important in our everyday lives. An essential component of this is the ability to assess speeds and distances accurately. This is relevant in a wide range of situations. In the sporting context it corresponds to the ability to position oneself in accordance with the movements of people or objects. In traffic psychological investigations this test can help to explain an eventful driving history, such as frequent involvement in accidents. The test is also used in personnel selection in the field of manufacturing & safety assessments.

    Test forms+

    S1: Long form
    S2: Short form
    S3: Linear form
    S4: Linear form – time anticipation only
    S5: Linear form – time anticipation, screening

    Task+

    A green ball moves about the screen. Its speed and direction of movement vary, depending on the task. The ball disappears at an unforeseen moment and two parallel red lines appear. One line passes through the point where the ball has just disappeared. The other is the target line. Respondents press a button at the moment in which they think the ball should have reached the target line. Respondents also indicate the point at which they think the ball would cross the target line. In both the long form S1 and the short form S2 the tasks vary in difficulty. The ball’s movements are initially linear; it then follows curvilinear paths and finally sinus curves.

      • Median deviation time, total: Measure of the ability to anticipate time.
      • Median direction deviation, total: Measure of the ability to anticipate movement.
    • S2 and S3:
      • Median deviation time: Measure of the ability to anticipate time.
      • Median direction deviation: Measure of the ability to anticipate movement.
    • S4:
      • Median deviation time, total: Measure of the ability to anticipate time.
      • Median deviation time from right/left: Measure of the ability to anticipate time for movements from right to left / movements from left to right.
    • S5:
      • Mean deviation time, total: Measure of the ability to anticipate time.
      • Mean deviation time, slow movements: Measure of the ability to anticipate time for slow movements.
      • Mean deviation time, medium-fast movements: Measure of the ability to anticipate time for medium-fast movements.
      • Mean deviation time, fast movements: Measure of the ability to anticipate time for fast movements.
