This test requires you to trace a path towards various symbols in a pre-defined order. The challenge is to plan your journey so that you never cross a path that you took previously. This gets more complex as you progress through the 3 levels because the number of symbols, their positions and their content makes the process increasingly complex. For Level 1 you simply need to join numbers sequentially. For Level 2 there are numbers and letters . For Level 3 you are presented with a maze and your task is to get from the start to the end as quickly as you with as few errors as possible (i.e. avoiding ‘blind alleys’ and blocks).
This questionnaire is not available free of charge.

This test requires you to help animals find their way to their ‘home’. They emerge from a cave and you direct them by opening and closing gates. If they end up in the wrong home they die. If you allow too many in one field they will die. The challenge is to get as many home as possible as different animals keep emerging. For Level 1 you have 4 animals, 4 fields and 4 homes. For Level 2 you have 5 animals, 6 fields and 5 homes. For Level 3 you have 6 animals, 9 fields and 6 homes.

This is based on the n-back method. There are three levels of this test where the memory challenge gets harder. You will see a landscape in which pictures of animals will appear and disappear. For Level 1 you need to say whether each animal is the Same or Different from the previous one (i.e. 1-back). For Level 2 you need to say whether each animal is the Same or Different from the one before the previous one (i.e. 2-back). For Level 3 you need to say whether each animal is the Same or Different from the one that was two before the previous one (i.e. 3-back).
This is based on the ‘pairs game’. You will be presented with the ‘backs’ of a pack of ‘cards.’ These can be turned over by clicking on them. Once two cards have been turned over, if they match they remain visible but if they don’t they are turned back over. If later you turn one over and remember that it is the same as a previous one you can make the match. There are 3 levels where Level 1 has a pack of 16 cards (4×4); Level 2 has a pack of 32 cards (4×8); Level 3 has a pack of 48 cards (6×8).
This is a simple Reaction Time test. It simulates you driving along a road and you have to press a key to STOP as soon as a Stag jumps out in front of you.
You are presented with a wall and you must click on different sides of the wall depending on the image that appears. There are three levels of this test where the complexity of the information you must process increases. For Level 1 you simply click on the same side if there is a white circle or the opposite side if there is a black circle. For Level 2 your choice depends on whether you see a relaxing or a combative image. For Level 3 the choice depends on whether a face is either happy or sad – and you will see a great range of different faces.
This is based on the well known Stroop effect. The first half asks you to click on the colour that matches a word (i.e. if it says Blue you click on the Blue circle even if the word is in a Red font). This can introduce confusion. The second half of the test asks you to click on the colour that matches a colour of the ink (i.e. if it says Blue but the ink colour is Red you click on the Red circle).
This test requires you to read certain rules and apply them to successive panels that contain shapes of different colours in various positions. The challenge is to remember the rules and to apply them quickly and accurately. As you go through the panels the instructions get increasingly complex but there are also three levels which introduce numbers and faces that make the memory challenge harder. For Level 1 the rules apply to identifying shapes of different colours in different positions and clicking on those specified. For Level 2 the rules apply to shapes and numbers. For Level 3 the rules apply to shapes, numbers, letters and faces.
