ITEMS AND SCALES
The Simple Maze Test allows the determination of three perseverance indicators.
The number of maze tasks a perseverance indicator, that takes into account the efficiency of task solving.
solved In this task, there is no negative stimulus associated with the maze tasks were selected so as to be easy.
failure "Easy tasks are those in which 80% of the subjects achieved the correctness of the result reaching not less than 80%, while difficult tasks are such conditions in which 80% of people achieved correctness not higher than
25% The time spent on solving the tasksb> The Synthetic Indicator of Perseverance - an auxiliary indicator, calculated as the quotient of the number of solved tasks and average time spent on one task.
This indicator combines perseverance taking into account the efficacy of solving tasks and resistance to distractors and the ability to inhibit irrelevant thoughts or memories.
High values of this indicator appear when the respondents are very focused on the task and solved a lot of tasks.
Low values of this indicator appear when the respondents are not sufficiently focused on the task and/or are subjected to activities or thoughts that distract them and solve low number of tasks.
The Simple Maze Test also allows to determine the average time spent on a single task.
This auxiliary indicator was calculated as the quotient of the time spent on a task and the number of tasks solved.
This indicator does not describe the persistence of the subjects, but determines the focus on the task, resistance to distractors and the ability to inhibit irrelevant thoughts or memories.
The tasks were easy and did not require a long thought process to solve them. It was assumed that: of this indicator arise when the subjects are not focused enough on the task to hand and are subjected to activities or thoughts that distract them from the task being performed.
high values Low values of this indicator will appear, when the subjects work without distraction from the they will have the ability to stop irrelevant thoughts and/or the resistance to distractors.task
