Virtual Reality‑Based Attention Test Review: The Nesplora Aula


The Nesplora Aula is a virtual reality-based continuous performance test that measures attentional processes in children from 6 to 16 years of age. The measure uses a virtual reality headset to create a classroom-like environment for the examinee, requiring the use of visual and auditory attention. The current article explores a brief history of continuous performance tests, the Nesplora Aula (created by Gema Climent Martinez and Sam Goldstein), its underlying theoretical framework, and its structure. The advantages are discussed, including its ecological validity and drawbacks, such as the technology required and the regional normative sample.
