PVT-Touch: Psychomotor Vigilance Task for Android

PVT

Psychomotor Vigilance Task (Android Version): The PVT was developed by Dr. David Dinges over 20 years ago and remains the most well-validated indicator of performance deficits attributable to sleep loss. This version was developed to work on touchscreen Android devices. It is still in development, so the current version is a protototype.

The PVT-Touch software is free for non-commercial research use. For more information or to download the software, visit http://www.pvttouch.com.

Sleep Practices and Attitudes Questionnaire (SPAQ)

Autogenic Exercise

The SPAQ was developed over the course of several years to capture how and why people sleep the way they do in the real world. The questionnaire was built around health behavior theory, focued on the Health Belief Model, Theory of Planned Behavior, and Transtheoretical Model.

To access the SPAQ, contact me. The SPAQ is free to use for all non-commercial research purposes. It must be licensed for other purposes and cannot be re-distributed without permission.

Assessment of the Sleep Environment (ASE)

Autogenic Exercise

The ASE was developed to quickly and comprehensively measure the degree to which the physical environment disturbs sleep. It is brief, easy to administer, and quick to score.
