Reaction Time Measurement
is a lightweight piece of software that enables you to calculate your reaction speed via a quick and forthright test using your mouse.
The idea behind the application is to help determine your reaction speed when you need to follow a set of instructions. The test implies that you keep the left mouse pressed until you a white circle shows up on the screen. Afterwards, you need to release the left button and press the right mouse button as quickly as you can.
While the instructions are included in the welcome screen, you will be happy to learn that they are also displayed throughout the test. After you complete the test successfully, the program exhibits your reaction times to the visual stimulus as well as the second button pressing. You can click the left mouse button to start the next measurement. You can preview all recorded values neatly organized in a table at the end of the examination.
The application does not require any setup and you can extract the archive to any desired location on your hard disk. The tiny program comes with a single window that opens in full screen and that provides you with the necessary instructions for performing the test.
You should know that you need to follow the instructions in their exact order, as otherwise the session gets canceled and you need to start the test all over again. On the other hand, you can specify the number of measurements that the program should repeat as well as the random delay time for stimulus to show up on your screen after you press the left mouse button.
All in all, Reaction Time Measurement is a simple and straightforward tool that allows you to calculate your reaction speed using your mouse and generate data that you can employ with your other projects.
