Quick Test™ does not require a baseline assessment to be completed. Quick Test™ determines results from a scientifically validated age referenced normative data set. Quick Test™ is only performed on an iPad due to the high tolerances and consistencies of touch screen response and standardized screen sizes across all iPad devices. Quick Test™ is performed by the Worker in a seated position, or other comfortable position, and does not rely upon the accelerometer in the iPad to obtain results.
Other cognitive function assessment tools on the market that must have a Worker baseline assessment in place typically require the use of many different devices such as touch screen phones, touch screen tablets, different computer and mouse configurations, and other devices that may have inconsistent tolerances that can alter a Worker’s baseline results.
If a Health Professional must administer the baseline assessment with other systems, higher costs are typically involved for the Employer.
During baseline testing for other systems, a Worker may intentionally attempt to obtain a low baseline score in an effort to alter their scoring on future tests.
If a Worker’s health condition changes, a new baseline test for other systems should be administered which can increase the costs for the Employer.
Employer’s that obtain a Worker’s baseline cognitive function test results with other systems are at a very high risk of human rights discrimination if they alter a Worker’s employment status, especially if the Worker’s baseline cognitive function test results with other systems indicate an underlying cognitive function deficit related to a protected grounds medical condition.
