I'm conducting a study on memory and the ability for people to memorize short sequences of numbers. In order to do this I've built a small web app to conduct memory tests. It tracks both correct answers and time spent and scores your performance - so speed is better but not at the expense of answering incorrectly.

The purpose of this study is to test your short term memory skills, numeric analysis ability, and speed. The test is divided in 5 levels of 5 questions that increase in difficulty. You may complete them in any order you choose and at any time if you would like to do some now and return later to do the rest, but you must complete them all before the results can be processed.

The test is randomly generated, so you can take it as many times as you'd like to try and do better, and it tracks your history so you can see you best score if you do it more than once. Each question presents you with a small set of numbers to memorize, then asks you to answer a question about the numbers.

It's very simple, and quick to do. Please give it a try, and share it around - compete against your friends!
