Free Cognitive Function & Performance Test
This test measures cognitive processing speed and attention. If this is your first time taking the cognitive performance test, please review the tutorial first — it’s worth the time to understand how to take this test. The goal of this cognitive function test is both accuracy and performance speed. A reaction speed of under 500 milliseconds is considered good performance, and very hard to accomplish the first few times taking the test.
