Gs (speed) invaders computerized game test

I just skimmed, with considerable interest, an article by McPherson and Burns (2007; Behavior Research Methods) that demonstrated a unique use of the CHC theory of cognitive abilities framework and validated markers of CHC abilities (viz., Gv and Gs).

Briefly, the authors developed a computer game-like test designed to assess cognitive processing speed (Gs) as defined by CHC theory. Although the two reported studies are based on small samples of undergraduate psychology students, the study demonstrates how contemporary CHC theory and research can be used as a framework to developed computer game-like measures of CHC abilities.
