New Festive Game Will Help You Experience a Memorable Christmas

November 14, 2017 Aon's Assessment Solutions

With so much to remember when you’re planning and preparing for Christmas, you may need a little practise to ensure you don’t forget anything. International assessment specialist Aon's Assessment Solutions has created a free online Christmas game, which tests your ability to retain information and checks whether you’re ready for the festive season.

Called the Christmas Decoration Challenge, the 30-second game involves memorising a grid of 12 Christmas-themed images, including decorations, presents, stockings, ribbons and reindeer. You’re then shown a blank grid, and a series of individual images, and you have to quickly identify the position in which each image was first displayed. You’re given instant feedback on whether your choices are right or wrong.

“Our new game is a fun challenge which tests your reaction speed and your short-term memory,” said Dr Achim Preuss, Chief Technology Officer of Aon's Assessment Solutions. “It’s a pre-Christmas brain workout that primes you to be prepared and unflustered as you approach the festive season. You can train yourself to remember everything you need to do, to ensure you’re ready for a memorable Christmas.”

A short introduction to the game provides instructions and examples. At the end, your score is calculated and you receive feedback on the implications, as well as how you compare against others. You can save your score in the ‘high scores’ list for others to see.

“Games and game-based memory tests are widely used alongside traditional psychometric assessments to assess people for jobs, to differentiate employers and to provide an immersive experience for candidates,” said Dr Preuss. “Our test designers have had some Christmas fun here by creating an engaging game that you can play as many times as you like, to get you into the spirit of the most wonderful time of the year.”
