Toolbox Tasks

The Toolbox Tasks consist of accuracy-based and adaptive threshold attention tasks that all demonstrate strong reliability and validity as measures of attention control. Each task takes roughly 10+ minutes to administer. It is advised to choose 3 of these tasks to measure attention control at the latent construct level. See Draheim et al. (2023) and Draheim et al. (2021) for more information.

For any questions about downloading, administering, or scoring the tasks feel free to contact us at
