    Reaction Time Test For IB Maths Project

    Hi,

    For my IB Maths Studies Project I am going to look at people's reaction times and then compare them and see which factors affect them most as well as looking at correlation, standard deviation etc etc.

    I need to collect as much data as possible and so I was wondering whether you would mind going onto:

    Online Reaction Time Test

    And then stating:
    -Your gender
    -Your age
    -Whether you smoke (Yes or No)
    -Whether you drive (including lessons-Yes or No)
    -How many hours you play computer games a week (games, not social networking/internet research etc)
    -How many hours you spend playing sport a week
    -Which hand you write with
    -Your date of birth

    I'm not using any names in my project so don't worry about that, if you could just answer it as accurately as poss I would appreciate it. Thanks! x

    Ok...

    And then stating:
    Gender: Male
    Age: 18
    Smoke?: No
    Drive (including lessons): No
    Hours of computer games a week: > 1
    Hours playing sport a week: > 1 ( I used to do more, but I have exams in a month, and I don't have as much time)
    Righty/Lefty: Righty
    Birthdate: 19 June 1992

    However, I'm often on the computer for more than 4 hours a day, and for a longer period of time when I don't have school, browsing forums mainly.

    Time:
    1. 0.272
    2. 0.257
    3. 0.28
    4. 0.258
    5. 0.274

    Lol, we're not in a competition, but if you like, I can try again and hit the mouse several times in a row, and hopefully, I'll have them in less than 0.1 s

    Looks like there is a fun and entirely not-pointless competition going on here, so here's another submission. First try.

    There was a slight problem with the original timing, despite being R-handed I have this machine set up with the mouse to the left, so the original timings (above) are L-handed. I have repeated R-handed and the timings are below:

    Time:
    1. 0.204
    2. 0.205
    3. 0.204
    4. 0.188
    5. 0.188
    AVG: 0.1978
