Frequently Asked Questions

How frequently does an AlertMeter test suggest a worker may not be as alert as they should be?

Fortunately, the majority of employees arrive at work alert and ready for work, and an employee's daily AlertMeter "in range" result can provide an affirmation for that good practice.

Data from over 75 million worker-hours indicates that on average only 1.5% of all AlertMeter tests will test out of range. Accurately identifying this small percentage who may lack sufficient alertness, due to any cause, enables supervisors to open productive conversations and apply your standard company policies.

What is the protocol when an employee's test shows them to be potentially not as alert as they should be?

Because AlertMeter only identifies when an employee's test results fall outside the employee's personally derived tolerated performance margin, and does not indicate the cause for the deviation, your next step is based upon your company policies and Human Resource protocols.

Are baseline scores static or dynamic?
Individual baseline scores are dynamic. The scoring algorithm adjusts automatically to reflect the user’s natural improvement at the test. This is referred to as a “rolling baseline.”
Are baselines separated according to industry or industry segment?

 No, all scores are specific to individual users and are independent of industries or sectors, other employees in the same company, age, and/or gender.

For what devices and platforms is AlertMeter available?
AlertMeter is available as an app for Apple iOS and Android OS smartphones, or it can be accessed with a Web browser on a 9” touchscreen tablet such as an Apple iPad, or on a desktop or laptop personal computer.
How can someone demo AlertMeter?
You can demo the browser-based test by going to To demo the smartphone app version, download the app from the Apple or Android app stores, launch it once installed, then tap “Just a Demo.”
Where do employees take the test?
Most organizations affix the touchscreen tablets to the wall or a table near clock-in devices or common entries, in ready rooms, line-out areas, or similar. Another option for some companies is allowing employees to use the AlertMeter app right from their smartphones. We recommend that you schedule a demo to learn more about the access options that fit your company and your industry needs. 
What do employees think of the test?
Surveys overwhelmingly show that employees appreciate the non-invasiveness of alertness testing.
How does management know when an employee’s test score deviates significantly from his or her baseline?
Employees are assigned to Supervisors in the Admin Dashboard. If an employee is flagged, a text message or email notification is sent to the Supervisor.
Can you game the system?
Gaming detection is built into the software. If it detects gaming, the system will abort for a set period of time. Because users will become more adept at the test over time, the algorithm adjusts baselines to account for natural improvement at the test. As a result, the system can detect if users are intentionally trying to manipulate their baseline scores.
Is the test difficult?
Not at all. In fact, people often find it enjoyable and like to see their scores as an insight into their present mental acuity.
