Development of a Computerized Visual Search Test
Reid, Denise; Babani, Harsha; Jon, Eugenia
International Journal of Rehabilitation Research, v32 n3 p205-212 Sep 2009
Visual attention and visual search are the features of visual perception, essential for attending and scanning one's environment while engaging in daily occupations. This study describes the development of a novel web-based test of visual search. The development information including the format of the test will be described. The test was designed to provide an alternative to existing cancellation tests. Data from two pilot studies will be reported that examined some aspects of the test's validity. To date, our assessment of the test shows that it discriminates between healthy and head-injured persons. More research and development work is required to examine task performance changes in relation to task complexity. It is suggested that the conceptual design for the test is worthy of further investigation.
