Short-term memory and the capacity of sensory memory

What is the task?

The test taker is presented with an image on-screen and must decide quickly if the image presented is the same as that of the second to last picture shown.

Each test is created by an item generator at run-time. This means that the assessment is different for each test taker thereby helping to prevent cheating, which is important when running unsupervised online administrations.


When can it be used?

This assessment supports the initial screening of applicants for roles which require a short-term memory for details. This includes controllers, safety inspectors, pilots and air traffic controllers. It is also suitable to help identify potential apprentices.
