In its newest iteration, the d2-R has become one of the most widely-used measures of attention – particularly visual attention – throughout Europe. Used not only within clinical and educational settings, it is also used within the pharmaceutical and transport sectors, and finds further application in areas such as sports psychology.
To access tests on our HTS 5 platform, users can choose from either a subscription or a non-subscription option. With the subscription model, users will pay an annual fee – which then allows them access to a full range of discounted pricing, based on the quantities of test takers they have. Those opting not to use the subscription model will pay our regular prices which include our full-service administration fee.

The d2-R consists of 14 test lines with 47 characters in each line. Each character consists of a ‘d’ or ‘p’ marked with one, two, three or four small dashes. The test taker must scan the lines and cross out all occurrences of the letter ‘d’ with two dashes while ignoring all other characters. The d2-R has been praised for its value in measuring focus of attention – and its contribution to extensive savings.The d2-R measures a variety of facets, including:
- Processing speed
- Accuracy of visual scanning
- Coordination of speed and accuracy
- Control of attention
- Inhibitory control
- Cognitive flexibility
- Consistency in work speed and persistence
- Rule compliance
- Motivation for the tasks
The recently-published d2-R includes the following enhancements:
- An additional practice phase to enhance test taker understanding
- The removal of ceiling effects by extending the length of the test lines
- New 2015 norms for the UK (n=606) and Europe (n=2100), incorporating data from the Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, and the UK
