Welcome to the Multi-Tasking Ability Test (MTAT) website

The MTAT is a short web based multi-tasking ability test. It is based on Dr. Susan Joslyn’s Abstract Decision Making (ADM) laboratory task, which she created and evaluated in five research studies published with Dr. Earl Hunt in the Journal of Experimental Psychology in 1998.  Since then, the ADM has been further evaluated by Dr. Susan Fischer and Dr. Joslyn in eleven research studies that were used to further develop the ADM as a reliable, practical, and useful test that assesses multi-tasking ability.  Those studies showed that the new test, the MTAT, is very effective at predicting future performance in certain jobs that require a high degree of multi-tasking ability. Please refer to the About the MTAT page for more information on the MTAT.  You can also gain additional information from the test and administration manuals.

From this website you can purchase online tests, administer tests, run reports and download test documentation.
