The Stroop Effect

Here are all four of the Stroop Tests that were on Class Dojo this week.

Which one did you find most challenging?

THE STROOP EFFECT was discovered in the 1930s by John Ridley Stroop.
The test involves saying the colour of a word, rather than reading the word itself.
Your brain must deal with the two conflicting pieces of information
This slows down reaction speed
and so requires careful thought to do.
It’s great brain training!
How fast were you?
Now try this one. Call out the name of the animal. Do not read the word.

Now try it with shapes. Again call out the shape you are seeing and the colour it is.

Do not read the labels.

Finally we are back to the colours but this time can you read the words?
