Uchida-Kraepelin performance test and "wrong answer"

The Uchida-Kraepelin performance test is a genre of psychological tests called the "performance test," and requires the examinee to perform continuous addition, which is the addition of single-digit numbers.

For example, when 3 and 8 are lined up, 3 + 8 = 11, so it is a rule to enter the last digit "1", but if you write a number other than "1" and leave it as it is "," Wrong answer "judgment.

What does "leave it as it is" mean? The Uchida-Kraepelin performance test has a remedy rule that if you make a mistake, you can erase it with a slash "/" and rewrite the correct answer (test). It will be explained before the implementation).
Even if you write 3 + 8 as 2, if you erase it with "/" and rewrite it as 1, it will be a correct answer and will not be counted as an incorrect answer.

By the way, the General judgment of the Uchida-Kraepelin performance test counts the number of incorrect answers for three specific lines.
Since there are 30 lines in the entire inspection, 10% sampling is performed.
How many wrong answers do you get in these three lines of work?

According to the statistics of Nisseiken, Inc., it is as follows.

Number of incorrect answers in 3 lines, which is 10% of the total
Number of incorrect answers in 3 lines, which is 10% of the total

0: Approximately 46% of examinees
1 piece: Approximately 25% of examinees

By now, it has already exceeded 70% of the examinees.

2 pieces: Approximately 12% of examinees
3 (1 on average per line): Approximately 6% of test takers

Up to this point, it is about 90% of the examinees.

It seems good to say, "Ordinary people make almost no mistakes in adding single-digit numbers."

This means that if you make 5 or 10 mistakes in a line, you suspect that something is unusual.
Wrong answers are infrequent and difficult to use in statistical analysis, but it is also true that people who frequently get wrong answers have clinically Distinctive characteristics.

  • There are many patterns in which incorrect answers are given irregularly and fluttering that you did not notice by mistake, and it seems that "rushing" is often the cause.
  • The answer I thought was correct was wrong
    Sometimes people don't realize their beliefs, such as answering all 8 + 3 as 2. There seems to be a tendency to stick.
  • I noticed a mistake but didn't fix it, and I often get a series of wrong answers that I noticed but can't fix, and it seems that my mind's brakes aren't working.
  • It tends to occur when you are not in a psychological state where you are not willing to write the correct answer from the beginning, and you are seriously facing the test that became irrelevant on the way.
  • In many cases, the amount of work that cannot be calculated is extremely small, and even adults rarely see counting with ten fingers.
