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