There are two versions of the MOXO test – a children’s test for ages 7-12 and an adult’s test for ages 13-60.

There are two versions of MOXO – the children’s test is 14 minutes long and the adult’s test is 18 minutes long. The test runs continuously without breaks.

No, MOXO is designed to be used only by a moxo trained professional. Please note that running the test in an inappropriate home setting without the presence of a certified clinician may invalidate the results of the test.

Yes, the test was validated in a study that included 547 children from Holland and Israel that showed 90% sensitivity and 86% specificity. For more information, please see the clinical libary.

MOXO is an assessment tool that can be used to help diagnose ADHD, therefore only professionals with training in this field may run the test. The criteria are: an degree in medicine, psychology, education, or closely related fields. This includes advanced training in the administration and interpretation of tests, OR those licensed or certified by a state agency that offers similar training, see here for a list of local certified professionals.

No! Neurotech makes every effort to prevent unauthorized use of the MOXO test. The results of tests run by a user that has not been authorized by Neurotech (i.e. with “Test Drive” status), will be water-marked with the word DEMO and there will be no option of printing the results. These results must be analyzed very carefully as it is impossible to guarantee that the test was run under the required conditions.

MOXO  has several advantages over other tests. Its main advantage is that it incorporates distracters into various levels of the test, in addition to the basic go/no-go task. As shown in a recent study, using distracters improves the effectiveness of ADHD diagnosis compared to tasks that do not include distracters.

There is only a single cost associated per test. Since the test is run on an internet browser, there is no need to purchase designated hardware or install specific software before running the test. Nevertheless, you must verify that the computer that will be used to run the test has a wire internet connection.

All of the information about tests that were run is stored on the company’s servers and is secured using the strictest security standards defined by the HIPAA regulations. Neurotech employees are authorized to view the test results when necessary, though they are unable to access any information that directly identifies the patient in order to protect medical confidentiality. Test results can be accessed using the Patient Code that is automatically assigned to each patient in the system.

You can access the test results via your MOXO account as soon as the test has been completed.

There is no fixed or uniform dosage. The dosage as well as the type of medication must be prescribed by a physician and administered only as directed.

The recommend interval between the two tests is 60-90 minutes. After running the test without medication, the patient should take the medicine, then wait 60-90 minutes before taking the test again.

Yes, the test can be used to help assess medical treatment. In some cases, a clinician might choose to run the test without medication, than run it again a second time approximately 90 minutes after the patient has taken the medication.

No, MOXO is a tool designed to help diagnose ADHD and its results alone are insufficient to diagnose a disorder. It is highly recommended to use additional clinical tools as well such as clinical observation, parent/teacher questionnaires and other tests as necessary, in order to diagnose the patient as accurately as possible.

The Examinee Type is a concise summary of the patient’s attentiveness profile that appears just above the criteria table.
The Examinee Type contains the following:
The first letter of the index (H, I, T, A)
The performance level for each index as shown in the criteria table.
When performance for any level deviates from the norm (level 4), the severity index will appear, indicated with an S followed by a number that indicates the severity level.

The severity table appears beneath the criteria table and displays the severity of the patient’s performance for each index in which the score was in the level 4 range  (z ≤-1.65). This helps compare multiple indices in which the patient showed difficulty in performance in order to understand which areas are the most problematic.

Once the z-score is calculated for each index, the patient’s performance is categorized into one of four performance levels as follows:
Level 1 (z>0): Good, above-average performance.
Level 2 (-0.825 ≤ z < 0): Standard performance, slightly below average.
Level 3 (-1.65 < z ≤ -0.825): Weak performance, within low norm range.
Level 4 (z  ≤ -1.65): Difficulty in performance, deviates from the norm range.

The table presents the patient’s z-score for each of the attentive indices. The score is a function of the average score and standard deviation of the patient’s norm group as defined by age and gender.

Recommend that the patient avoid visual distracters, especially while learning. The child can benefit from sitting in the front row of his class near the teacher, and should do homework and study for tests on a neat desk without papers scattered around. The child should also be seated in front of a blank wall without pictures or posters.

Performance in both distracter levels must be significantly different from performance in level  1 in order to determine that certain distracters interfere with performance. A higher or lower score in only one of the distracter levels cannot guarantee that the difference in performance was the result of the specific distracter.

Keep in mind that the score in the criteria table is compared to the norm, therefore it is a function of the patient’s age and gender. The performance graph, on the other hand, represents performance in relation to the highest possible score, therefore it is an absolute value. It is possible that an average score of 70 in the performance graph for a specific index will be considered outside of the norm for one patient (such as an older patient, over 30 years old), though within the norm for another (such as a very young 8-year old patient).

To determine whether performance changes over time, compare performance in levels 1 and 8. These two levels are identical and do not incorporate distracters of any kind. The only difference is that one is conducted at the beginning of the test and the other at the end. If the score in level 8 is 11 or more points lower than in level 1, the patient’s performance decreased over time. Similarly, a higher score in level 8 indicates improved performance over time.

To determine whether a specific distracter type interferes with performance, the scores for both levels containing that type of distracter should be compared with performance in level 1, the baseline level. Only scores in both of those levels that are at least 11 points lower than the baseline level score indicate that distracters of this kind interfere with performance. Similarly, distracters may show improved performance.

If the patient’s performance in one or more indices deviates from the norm (z≤-1.65),there is a high probability that the patient suffers from ADHD. It is therefore recommended to refer the patient for further expert evaluation. This conclusion is based on validation research conducted on the test which showed that those with ADHD showed significantly lower performance than the control group in each of the indices. If is important to note that the test results alone cannot be used to diagnose ADHD. They can only indicate a likelihood of an attention disorder and map out the problematic indices.

Currently when printing a pdf the graph comes out fragmented. It is therefore advisable not to print as a pdf , but rather print directly by selecting “click to print the page
In addition, the table and graph can be saved separately as in pdf format.
Under the table and graph there is a “to pdf” button; when clicking this button, the results can be saved as a pdf. It is important to note that the extension of the file being saved is “pdf”

It is important to remember that after executing the test it is not necessary to click the “back” button. When the back button is clicked and you return to the test, the status immediately becomes “no data” and there are no results. You can reach anywhere on the site by using the main menu.

After the test has been performed, we, regrettably, cannot change the results.
The results are determined according to the details entered by the user on the site. It is therefore extremely important to pay attention when filling out these details.
The examinee’s details can be modified as long as there are no tests listed under their name, including those that have a “run test” status. In order to edit the examinee’s name you should go to the “patient” page and click the edit icon in the “actions” column.

A “no data” status is received for several reasons:

  1. When a disconnection from the Internet occurs before the test is over.
  2. The session times out if there is no activity for approximately 30 minutes after accessing the “start test” page and preparing the test for the examinee. The test can still run, but when returning to view the results there will be a  “no data” status.

Solution:

  1. If there is no Internet connection, a message appears requesting that you connect the computer to the network; after connecting to the network, you should click the “send data” button, located in the upper left corner of the test screen.
  2. It is important to remember that on completion of every work session with the site, the program should be exited via the “sign out” located in the main menu under “more“.

Start running MOXO in your clinic in four simple steps:

1. Open an account a www.moxo-adhdtest.com and receive free trial tests.
2.  In your account click on MORE-> BECOME A FULL MEMBER and fill in registration forms.
3. Approximately 48 hours after we receive your forms, your status will be updated to Full Member in the system and you will receive authorization to purchase test packages.
4. Purchase a test package using an online account and start using MOXO.

It is possible to delete an examinee’s record, however it is important to mention that such an action will also lead to the deletion of all tests performed by this patient. Deletion of a record is done by clicking on the red X in the Actions column on the Patients page. The deletion of the record should be confirmed by typing in your access password.

The patient’s details can be modified on the Patient  page in the Actions column. Please note, modifying a patient’s details will not bring about a change in the results of a test that has already been executed.

The Test tag allows a comment to be worded and added by the user.

  1. After adding an examinee and filling in their personal details, the “add new test” link can be clicked. On this page you should  verify that the examinee’s name and age are correct, and most importantly, that the correct package was selected in the “please select a package” field. (When selecting the package, the number of  tests remaining in this package are indicated in brackets). After confirmation of the package and addition of medication (if necessary) the  “submit” button should be clicked and the “tests” page appears. On this page, click “run test” in the specific examinee’s row, and a test is started.
  2. At any time it is possible to add a test by clicking  “tests” in the main menu and the “add new tests” link, from here. The instructions are similar to the previous section with the only difference being that the name of the examinee should be selected.

At the initial sign-in to the site you should go to the “new patient” link on the “patients” page.
On this page you enter the patient’s details and click “save“.
Afterwards, you can fill in the questionnaire (optional) and click “save“.
On the next page you need to click the link “add new test” on the right hand side of the screen, in order to add a test for this specific examinee.

  1. Check whether the user is typing in English or another language
  2. Attention should be paid to capital and small letters
  3. In case suggestions one and two do not work, reset the password through the interface
  4. In case suggestion three does not work, the password can be reset via technical support

When a package is about to expire a warning message is sent. The system considers each package separately, therefore, even if the user has several packages each one will receive a separate warning email.

An interrupted test is not deducted from the quantity of tests remaining in the package. You will be charged only for tests that have been completed and the status is Results.

in the main menu, go to  “more” and “my packages“. On this page you can see how many remaining tests you have from each subscription

In cases where a screen with built-in loudspeakers is used there may be faults in hearing the distractors during the test. Therefore, we recommend using only external loudspeakers.

You should go over the basic conditions for running the test:

  1. What type of computer is being used: Mobile or stationary?
  2. If stationary, is it connected by a wired or wireless connection?
  3. In cases where a mobile computer is being used, has the mouse pad been disconnected?
  4. We do require with a mobile computer that the external keyboard and mouse be connected via cable
  5. You should pay attention that there are no software messages and updates that might pop up during the test (Skype, anti virus, Windows updates, etc.).
  6. We recommend working with the Chrome browser.
  7. If working from an institution (psychoeducational service, school, or municipality etc.), it is important to ascertain with the institution’s technical support that our site is not blocked.
  8. Verify that the examinee has not pressed any key other than the spacebar.
