# Toulouse-Pieron test: online version

The Toulouse-Pieron test is a variation of the Bourdon test, which, like the rest of the Bourdon test, is used to measure the ability of attention.

With the Toulouse-Pieron test, you can measure your performance metrics - including fatigue, performance stability, and concentration. Here you can take the Toulouse-Pieron test online for free. Note: it will take 2 seconds for the server to prepare the table and calculate the result. For devices with a small screen size, tables are provided in two, three or four lines per one row of the test, select the appropriate link, focusing on the icon in front of the link. However, keep in mind that you need to fill in the cells sequentially - from left to right, first completely the top line, and only then the line below, otherwise the result will be greatly distorted. By the way, for those who are not in the know, the first row of numbers is trial, it is needed in order to get used to the rectangles that need to be selected in the row.

### Instructions for the Toulouse-Pieron test:

A limited time is given to complete one row - either one minute - for schoolchildren, or 30 seconds - for adults. In front of you you see several rows of rectangles, consisting of two segments - an upper rectangle with a pattern for crossing out and a lower rectangle for underlining. Your task is to sequentially, starting with the left rectangle, fill in as many rectangles in a row as possible. If the drawing of the segment coincides with the specified two or three pictures, select the upper rectangle with the same pattern - deletion. If the segment does not match, select the bottom rectangle - the underline. After switching the window, immediately proceed to the next row. Practice to get a better understanding of how everything works here.

### Toulouse Pieron test, adult version

A variant of the Toulouse-Pieron test for adults. Here you need to select rectangles in the table of rectangles with a given direction of a black semicircle located at different corners of the rectangle. Select the lower segment if the picture does not match the task. The time to complete the Toulouse-Pieron test online is 15 minutes - 30 seconds for each row.

Toulouse-Pieron test for adults (classic version of the Toulouse-Pieron test for 30 lines).

A variant of the Toulouse-Pieron test for schoolchildren. The task is the same as in the adult version of the test. The time to complete this version of the test is 10 minutes.

Toulouse-Pieron test for children from 6 to 7 years old.

Toulouse-Pieron test for children from 8 to 9 years old.

Toulouse-Pieron test for children from 10 to 12 years old.

Toulouse-Pieron test for children from 13 to 17 years old.

Toulouse-Pieron test theory:

The test was invented by the French psychologist Henri Pieron, one of the founders of the French Institute of Psychology. Children from the older school were initially selected as subjects to assess the ability of the volume and quality of voluntary attention. The test is a form depicting geometric figures (usually a rectangle with a dark area drawn on one of 8 sides) in 10 rows of 60 figures in each row, among which the subjects should find and underline figures with two specified directions of the dark area.

The subjects should find and underline figures with two given directions of the dark area, and select the lower rectangle if the figure does not coincide.

• Main factors:

The processing speed (V) is calculated by the formula: V=N/c, Где N - the number of characters processed, and c is the number of lines.

Processing accuracy (K) is calculated using the formula: K = (N-A) / N , where A is the average number of errors (both incorrectly underlined and incorrectly crossed out).

The following is a table for evaluating the result of the Toulouse-Pieron test for children from 7 to 12 years old

The detection of pathology in the speed and accuracy of processing may indicate the presence of MCD (minimal cerebral dysfunction) - mild forms of cerebral pathology caused by one reason or another. MCD differs in types:

Subnormal type (A):

Subnormal type (B):

Active type:

Rigid type:

Asthenic type:

Reactive type:

An adult can also test his capabilities, although the classic version of the 30-line test, which is also available on the site, is used for this.
