Im contacting you regarding a development of flash based data gathering tool. The purpose of this application is to be implemented within a survey website in relation to my dissertation research which im conducting on cognitive performance. The participants in my research need to be tested on three separate task in the form of semi-minigames.
1. Mental Rotation Tasks.
This task is designed to measure the participants mental rotation abilities. By using a 10 item mental rotation questionnaire. Please see the link to get better idea of what the task is about [url removed, login to view] The application need to present 10 of those problems ( which I will provide) and record completion time of all 10 problems and the number of correct answers.
2. Multiple Object Tracking.
The purpose of this task will be to track 3 objects and correctly identify them. The participant will be shown a screen with 10 dots, 3 red and 7 green for a few seconds. After that the 3 red spots need to turn in the same green colour as the other 7. Next, all 10 dots need to start moving in a random pattern and slow peed for 5 seconds. After they stop, the participant will need to points which 3 spots were originally red. The participants will be given three chances to select the correct dots (3 clicks). If he marks 2 or more correct dots he proceeds to the second trial of the task in which the dots will move on faster speed. This continues until the participant selects 1 or less correct dots. The application will need to record the number of correct dot clicks across all trials. ([url removed, login to view] )
3. Block Tapping Task.
This is a memory task in which the participant will be required to memorise and repeat a sequence of flashing squares. In the first trial the sequence will be 2 and it need to increase with 1 for every other trial. The application will need to record the number of correctly reported sequences.

I tried to write this as briefly as a could so you can get a general idea about the application that I require. As you can see from the screenshots which I provided I do not require any special design features. Graphically I need to be as simple as it gets.
