Munsterberg test - online.

Description of the test according to the Munsterberg method. The Munsterberg test, or the Munsterberg technique, allows you to determine the level of selectivity and concentration of the subject's attention, and can be used in professional selection for specialties that require certain levels of selectivity and concentration, as well as high resistance to interference, that is, to distractions. The technique itself requires the subjects to find and select words - nouns - among a number of random symbols in the English language. The minimum word length is 4 letters! The time for passing the test is limited, so you need to highlight words as quickly and accurately as possible. Highlighting an extra letter together with the word that needs to be highlighted, or incomplete highlighting of this word will be considered an error. Here are two versions of the Munsterberg test - a short, regular version, which is more suitable for children (schoolchildren), and an extended version, the passage of which will more accurately assess the concentration abilities of adults.


The following versions of the Munsterberg test are more suitable for passing on a personal computer. The selection of text occurs with the help of the mouse - by pressing the left mouse button and highlighting the desired area of text:

The following two versions of the test according to the Munsterberg method are suitable, among other things, for passing on mobile devices. You will have to select each letter of the word separately by alternately clicking on them with the left mouse button or with your finger or stylus on the touch screen of a mobile device.

Calculation of the result of the Munsterberg test. To calculate the result of passing the test according to the Munsterberg method, a table is used (for the short form of the Munsterberg test), in which the level of attention selectivity is assessed by the time of the test (the table is given below). In addition, formulas are used to calculate (for the extended version) speed of work A , accuracy of execution according to the Whippley method T, concentration level K and quality of work R, which are used in calculating the results tests - Bourdon's tests.

For each mistake made, one point is deducted from the result calculated using the table. It should be borne in mind that the interpretation of the results of passing the Munsterberg test online may be distorted towards underestimation or overestimation due to the lack of research on this form of passing the test according to the Munsterberg method. To obtain more accurate results, it is recommended to pass a professional test in the presence of a competent specialist psychologist, as well as to take into account the current psycho-emotional state of the subject.
