Attention TestHere is a simple attention test. All you need to do is copy the paragraph below into the box below. However, to make things harder, the paragraph of text is made up of random letters, and not words, in order to make it much harder.
You must copy the exact text below into the empty text box below it. You need to do this as quickly and as accurately as you can. Once you are done, you should then review and see how well you did. If you made no mistakes, then well done - you showed good attention. If mistakes crept in, then practice again. You can retake the attention test as many times as you wish, with a different paragraph of text to reproduce each time.

Now write the text above into the box below as quickly and as accurately as you can, in one continuous concentrated effort and avoiding distraction:
Now check how well you did! Did you get it all right? How quickly did you complete the test? Did you notice your speed at copying the text reduce as you proceeded or were you able to maintain the same pace throughout the attention test?
