What to do While Practicing

  • Posture: The Subject sits with good posture, approximately arm’s length from the screen, with the eyes level at the top of the screen.
  • Head Position: During practice, the Subject should hold the head still and move the eyes only.
  • Rapid Number Naming: Once practice begins, the Subject says each number out loud, left-to-right, top-to-bottom as quickly and accurately as possible.
  • Adjusting Practice Speed: The goal is to achieve the fastest speed (numbers per minute) with no errors. It may take a few trials to find the ideal practice speed. If the Subject is having difficulty keeping up or has excessive errors, adjust to a slower speed. If the Subject is able to see and say all numbers presented without difficulty, increase the speed by 5 numbers per minute. 100% accuracy should be achieved for three practice rounds, or nine Practice Cards, before increasing the speed.
  1. Once a Subject has completed their King-Devick Test, they are now ready to begin practicing. The speedometer is automatically adjusted to the recommended starting speed based on K-D Test performance. To manually adjust your Subject's practice speed, click faster or slower on the speedometer, or click and drag the speedometer needle. Once the desired speed is selected, click the Practice button.

    A note regarding Image Selection:
    The Recovery Acceleration Program includes a feature called Image Selection that allows subjects to select various target images rather than numbers to call out. The alternative options are colors, shapes, or farm animals. This feature cannot be used in conjunction with Practice Accuracy Checking, as that is only able to be used with number naming. The Subject's speed may vary depending on the target images they decide to use.

Practice Accuracy Check

The Practice Accuracy Check is an optional feature that uses your device microphone and speech technology to provide automatic accuracy estimates during your Subject’s K-D RAP Practice.



The K-D RAP Administrator checks the Practice Accuracy Check box in the Subject’s profile to enable it.






Practice Accuracy Check can be toggled ON or OFF depending for a given practice under the speedometer.
