Over 4000 people have done the multi-tasking test and the researchers from The University of Queensland are thrilled. The Multi-tasking Test is now closed. The researchers will soon begin the task of analyzing the data for the answers to their question - what makes a good multi-tasker? In the meantime, you can read a little bit about the early (non-scientific) results. More...

The Multi-tasking Test is a way to collect information for a scientific study. Like most of us, scientists have ideas about things. But to get these ideas accepted they have to be proved right. Scientists do this by collecting information, or data in experiments (like the Multi-tasking Test), and then analysing the data for trends and links. more...
