About Us

Welcome to the Macquarie Online Test Interface (MOTIf): an online platform for the administration and scoring of cognitive tests developed at Macquarie University.

You can administer these tests online to one or more people and the results will be stored in your own private and secure test page. Alternatively, you can download hardcopies of the test materials and administer the tests offline.

We hope you find this tool useful.
