DETAILS

SYSTEM OVERVIEW

The Schuhfried VTS enables computer-assisted application of a large number of highly diverse psycho-diagnostic tests and measuring procedures. In developing the system much emphasis was placed on transparent structure and largely uniform design. It is therefore simple to operate and easy to understand and does not require any special computer skills.

The VTS basic module is required for administration of any of the available tests.

The Schuhfried VTS supports the administration of both single tests and test batteries. Many of the single tests are available in different test versions. These test versions may differ, for example, in terms of test duration or difficulty or may be parallel forms. They are characterized by different parameters reflecting specific test requirements. They have been designed for administration to a specific population (e.g. psychiatric patients, children, etc.) or for special measuring purposes (e.g. repeated measurements). Test batteries are compiled from the available single tests and test versions.

OVERVIEW

The Double Labyrinth Test makes possible a reliable assessment of visuomotor coordination in tasks of a pre-set speed.

APPLICATION

Assessment of the eye-hand coordination ability in task of predetermined speed.

Main areas of application: traffic psychology, diagnostics of motor abilities, and sports psychology.

THEORETICAL BACKGROUND

This test is an enhanced version of the test "Le test du double labyrinthe" by Bonnardel, which is a standard test in the traffic psychology in France. The original test was an instrument made of a cylinder, which rotated at a constant speed. The respondent had to maintain two markings in the middle of the track by means of two levers. Each time a marking touched the side of the track was counted as an error.

The course of the track becomes gradually more difficult and requires constantly adjusted movements. The test assesses speed and reaction of adjusting the movements to the track. Up to now, the Double Labyrinth Tests is the only one among various psychomotor tests to form a synthesis of the factors coordination, precision in adjusting the movements to the track, and focused attention, taking into account the capacity of sustained visual perception.

ADMINISTRATION

The respondent is required to maintain to circles on a track by means of two control knobs. The left knob is to steer the left circle, the right knob for the right circle. The respondent is informed to make sure that the circles do not touch the edges of the track. If this is the case, the respondent has to adjust the position of the circle accordingly with the respective control knob. After a practice phase of 40 seconds, the test phase starts and takes 2 minutes and 45 seconds.

TEST FORMS

There is one test form that takes 2 minutes and 45 seconds.

SCORING

The following variables are being recorded

  • Number of mistakes
  • Length of mistakes
  • Length of mistakes in percent
  • Number of mistakes - left hand
  • Length of mistakes - left hand
  • Length of mistakes in percent - left hand
  • Number of mistakes - right hand
  • Length of mistakes - right hand
  • Length of mistakes in percent - right hand
  • An optional depiction of the course of the test is possible.

RELIABILITY

The present reliabilities (internal consistency) amount to 0.96 for the "Length of mistakes" and 0.80 for the "Number of mistakes". Furthermore there are also separately recorded reliability coefficients available for the left hand and the right hand.

VALIDITY

A validation study for the computerized version of the B19 showed significant correlations between the tests 2HAND and B19. Thus the test can be considered to provide a convergent validity.

NORMS

Norms of a representative comparative sample (N=567) are available.

TESTING TIME

About 5 minutes.
