"Single Switch Performance Test" Free Download
AAC Institute has available for download assessment software for use with students who are learning to access a single switch. The software assesses and keeps data on latency of switch press from visual/auditory cue, latency of switch release from a visual auditory cue and ability to press switch repetitively. The cue is a large, full-screen if you wish, rectangle with text and a sound effect (no voice cue, just a sound). You can set the colors as you wish. The software also allows for you to record the name of the student, the switch site and type and any notes.
I can see this software being beneficial for statewide alternate assessment, IEP related data collection and figuring out where to set the baseline timing for switch users on new AAC or alternative access devices.
