Selective Attention Test Activity - featured November 5, 2010

< Back to Previous Page


Editor's Note: This is a great activity. It wasn't designed to be used with kids but it is really a terrific activity to demonstrate to children (I would say 3rd grade and up) about the limits of attention. According to the authors of this experiment, about 50% of the people who take this 'test' answer NO to the question posed at the end. Apparently, there is little correlation with IQ either. I wonder if our ADD/Gifted/Special kiddos who have hyperfocus issues would do compared to general population?

How might one use this test with gifted/special kids? Post your suggestions on our blog!
