Results Analysis

HOME - Memory Fitness Testing Center web page is where you start your online memory fitness testing experiences.

You can get a flash player here installed in your browser to view the interactive Memory Fitness Testing Center Presentations.

The HOME page will play an overview of how Personal Memory Fitness Testing can be valuable in an individual's early disorder-disease detection, and also arm you doctor with historic information useful in developing neurological disease treatment strategies.

The Memory Fitness Testing Platform available to members and Guests of the center can be an effective tool for individuals to rate and score their brain’s ability to form recent events, and, if an individual keeps a multiple record of a standardized test taken, a fair appraisal or “normal” memory fitness rating can be estimated.

The Memory Fitness Testing Center does not offer any form of medical or Neurological testing. What is offered is a simple recent event recall test that can be standardized for repeated testing, and when standardized tests are administered properly will yield a fairly consistent rating or scoring of a test taker’s short term memory and new learning performance capabilities.

The information and testing available here are offered as support resources for individuals to develop personal Neurological treatment programs in consultation with their doctors.

You and your doctor need all the help you can get. You should be meeting with your doctor regularly, and in each visit you should be reviewing your health/fitness program. How well are you reporting your memory fitness, neurological disease prevention, and memory disorder monitoring program?

Memory Fitness As A Vital Sign – Using a version of Dr. Ashford’s clinical short term memory and new event learning memory fitness tests, the Memory Fitness Testing Center offers visitors to the center’s web page free memory fitness testing. The service makes it possible for visitors to design a memory fitness test – that will provide a “snapshot” of their brain’s ability to identify when an image repeats itself within a testing session.

 

Taking one test, has little value or meaning in relationship to an individual trying to monitor for memory disorder. How could it?

Memory disorders can’t be detected without having a baseline or historic record of what the “normal” memory fitness of a brain would be.

The Snapshot scoring and results of a well conducted test session, is however very accurate at rating the test taker’s memory fitness at the time the test was taken.


The taker accurately detected 25 out of 26 exposures as repeating or appearing for the first time in the test.

A 96.15% score is not bad in any league. And the taker completed the test in 48.75 seconds, with an average response time of .92 seconds per event.

Notice the detailed information below the scoring – we will talk about that in a moment, but for now it is safe to say that the taker of this test (assuming the test was taken properly) has strong cognitive reasoning and good memory fitness – but this is just casual observation.

Again, this is just a snapshot and can not be used as a diagnosis or relative standard of the individual who took the test’s neurological health.


The Snapshot Is Really A Picture Window giving you a glimpse into about 250,000 pieces of information gathered during the test.

Most individuals don’t concern themselves with this level of data – which appears directly under the immediate test result scoring.

It is important information to have, as it represents certain characteristics of your brain’s recall and new event learning capacities – but, first time test takers needn’t worry about details at this level.

It is always interesting to see the results of a test after taking it - and reviewing them is also a new learning experiences.

Mental health wise, memory fitness testing is a Win-Win!

This is a screen save from the Memory Fitness Testing Center’s free GUEST testing account – so the results vary because hundreds of people take tests – and the bar graph does not represent an individual’s baseline information.

Individuals are welcome to record (or print out) individual test results they take from the free guest account – and compile their own graph to establish a baseline.

Personal Memory Fitness Testing Accounts are available for $10 a year. Those establishing personal accounts would grow a history and archive of unlimited numbers of tests they take. Open your personal testing account through any “Sign-In” button, or the “New User” link of the LOGIN page.


The Personal Memory Fitness Baseline History holds the real value in frequent memory fitness testing, and monitoring for any reduction in your brain’s ability to form recent memory. When such a record is viewed, one can identify an average or consistent performance level of memory fitness on standardized tests.

It takes time to establish a historical baseline of memory fitness, and only healthy brain’s need apply. Individuals are encouraged to learn how to take the test through the FREE Guest account – so, the “learning curve” of how to design and take the tests are well ingrained before personal accounts start accumulating.

The Theory of Personal Memory Fitness Test Result Analysis comes into focus when you study the right hand end a personal baseline graphic.

Notice the last five test reports are all over 90% in scoring. Let’s assume each test was taken 90 days apart, and similar configurations (options) were set on each test taken.

The last five test results represent a “normal” operating range for this individual’s memory fitness.

Notice there is a test with a 50% score, and this can represent a number of things. The test taker could have become unfamiliar with how they are to take a test. The test taker could have made mistakes and recognized images from a previous test – depressing the space bar thinking they were repeating in this particular test.

In any case, a lone test score below the “normal” rating of the individual are not cause for alarm. They happen, and the test taker should take a break, clear their memory and re-test when they are comfortable.

However, should an individual repeatedly score lower than normal on standardized tests, they should contact their doctor as soon as possible. Reduced memory fitness can be caused by many things – and it happens far more than most people are aware of. Sleep deprivation and fatigue can cause dramatic reductions in your brain’s ability to learn and form recent memory – as much as 35% reduction! Allergic reactions, post-surgical recovery, event stress can also greatly reduce your ability to think straight (learn) or recall memories.

What to do if you score poorly?

Take a break, and when relaxed, re-test.

 

 

Over time, you can get a feel for tests that are challenging, yet you perform well on. You can also review the individual test details and fine turn your standard testing configurations.

You’ll notice the date, time, length of exposure, score and “View” buttons are directly below each test taken.

Clicking on the “View” button calls up the detailed scoring and results of that particular test.


Again, these are individual test results that go right into a per slide reaction report – overkill for average use.

However, using frequent tests and going over your testing results with your doctor, will give your doctor more information about your cognitive and neurological fitness than any other form of mental health monitoring we know.

With the assistance of your doctor, your disease prevention and basic health/fitness program can now include baseline memory fitness as a vital sign.

If and when any reduction is detected in your brain’s ability to form recent memory, your doctor can quickly determine if there is need for swift treatment. If there isn’t a memory disorder, you will still gain an edge of comfort and peace of mind knowing that you have adopted an effective memory fitness monitoring tool/test program.
