The Color Word Attention Test (CWAT)

The test can be compared to the classic Stroop test, but is administred more efficiëntly on a digital screen. Instead of printing a field of stimuli, each page now only contains one stimulus. This allows for automatic registration of responses and the reaction times. The test consists of four subtests:




Colored Words Interference. Words printed in the ‘wrong’ color.


Colored Words Interference and Inhibition. Dependent on the stimulus, either respond to the text or the printed word.
