Test Mode: The test mode is designed to help clinicians/teachers evaluate a person’s scanning ability for both time and accuracy. Select the level(s) you want to complete and the number of targets (1 or 2), then press the forward arrow button. At the top of the screen, the target(s) will be displayed along with a clock. The clock will start when you first touch a letter/symbol in the playing area. Touch each target on the screen. When all targets have been found, the test will end. If the user is finished finding targets but has not found all of them, press the “Done” button at the top to end the test. Results can be e-mailed at the end of the test.
Practice Mode: The practice mode is designed to train users to scan in a left-to-right, top-to-bottom pattern. Practice can be completed with a solid or flashing red, yellow, green or blue line on the left or right side of the screen to help draw attention to that side for users with visual inattention. Select the level(s) you want to complete and the number of targets (1 or 2). In Practice mode, each target must be touched in sequence from left to right. The “incorrect” sound will be heard if a target is touched out of sequence, even if it is a correct target. All targets must be found to end the level. Press the “Skip” button to move to the next level before completing the current one. Results can be e-mailed at the end of any practice exercise.
Clock: The clock will start on each level once you start touching letters/symbols in the play area. Touch the clock to pause at any time. Touch the clock again to restart. Pressing the “Home” button in the upper left corner will also pause the clock; press “Continue” to resume.
Levels: There are 10 levels, organized from easiest to hardest. The levels contain a combination of symbols and letters. Use symbols for users who do not read or are less comfortable with letters; use letters for readers.
Number of Trials at Each Level: Select 1-5 or 10 trials at each level of practice or testing.
Number of Lines: Select from “Fewest, Some, More, or Most” for the number of lines on the screen. The actual number will change based on the spacing of the stimuli. “Most” is the hardest setting.
Spacing: Select from “Small, Medium, or Large” spacing between stimuli. “Small” is the hardest setting.
Cancelled Targets: Select from a variety of visual markers to indicate targets have been found.
Signal: If using the “Right” or “Left” signal in Practice Mode, select the color of the signal.
Signal Flashing: Make the signal flash for a stronger pull of the user’s attention to the side of the screen.
Maximize Font: Increase the font size when “Spacing” is Medium or Large.
E-Mail Results To: Enter the address of the SLP, OT, or other person monitoring progress.
Deactivate Links: Turn this setting on to deactivate the links on the home screen.
