Designing a Test

Modified on Mon, 15 May 2023 at 06:11 PM

  1. Select the Test designer page from the bottom of the iPad screen. Here, you can design new tests or open previously designed tests for editing.
  2. On the right-hand side, you can see the available device options for your test including: Gate, Start and Cone (the Video feature will be available soon). Drag and drop your desired devices into position in the central test design area. By default, you will see the linear distance from device to device in the order you place the devices on the screen. If you want to remove a device, hold your finger on the device and drag towards the top of the screen to the Remove Bin.
  3. Once you have placed all devices in their positions, tap the Draw path button found at the top of the Test designer screen. With your finger, trace the path the athlete will travel during the test, passing through individual Sensors multiple times if desired. The Test designer tool will now predict the path your athlete will take during the test and demonstrate this to you via a moving blue dot. If you are satisfied with the test path, select Finish at the top of the screen. If not, simply redesign the test or redraw the path until you are satisfied.

In the example test shown below, we have designed a 10 metre acceleration test with a Start Sensor and 2 Gate Sensors at 5 metres and 10 metres respectively. A path has been drawn from left to right via the Draw path function.

Tap on each device to alter specific settings for that device, including enabling or disabling top and bottom Sensor beams, and triggering on entry or exit of the Sensor (menu shown on the right). You can also hold your finger on the Reflector alongside each Sensor in your test design and rotate the orientation of the Sensor.
