Field of Application+
The TACO is a test for measuring attention and concentration. The test permits the assessment of both selective attention or concentration and selective sustained attention.
Since these are a very basic ability which is correlated with a large variety of behaviors, the application area of the TACO is very broad. The test was primarily developed for the human resources area and for professions in the area of safety & security assessment, in particular.
Two parallel test forms are available for the assessment of selective attention or concentration:
S1: Standard form & S2: Parallel form
Two parallel test forms are also available for the assessment of sustained selective attention:
S3: Long form & S4: Long form (parallel)
It is the respondent's task to find target stimuli in a matrix of nine stimuli per test page and to mark them. The stimuli to be marked are displayed above the stimulus matrix on every test page. The respondents are given 6 seconds to complete each test page.
Test form S1 and S2: appr. 8 minutes
Test form S3 and S4: appr. 32 minutes
