Description

To perform automated digit span tests to evaluate on working memory function, especially in cognitive / neuro research. Hope to reduce practice effects and eliminate the need to use clinical assessments in research settings. Requires Java 7 or newer. Note that this is a research tool, and was not intended (and not evaluated) for clinical assessment.

FINAL VERSION: If you want more features, download the source and hack it yourself.

Ethics Note: Since this does not diagnose anything, label results as normal/abnormal, contain pre-made stimuli or anything from a published assessment, and neither tries to teach the task nor seems to do so (as some commercial products claim to do) I believe it is safe and acceptable in the public domain. (If this were not true, it wouldn't be here.)

    Dear Digit span test team. We are using this software for our eye tracking project. However, we are facing a problem with this software in the middle of the project. When the digit span test is finished with the participant, there is a problem to save the file. Then in such a situation, the last three rows get erased. This causes to lose the participant data. Is there any way this problem could be solved ? Could the software be updated ? best, Sujay , TU kaiserslautern
