Advice

You can adapt the level of difficulty to the client’s performance by various means, such as by removing the audio signal or adjusting the program’s settings so that it does not respond immediately to changes in performance.
 
Since the client uses the mouse in this procedure, the system can also identify the effects of working position and stress on the musculature.

Observe how the client works the tasks. The adaptive procedure takes the client to the limit of his performance. What does he consider to be the reasons for mistakes? Are they blamed on lack of computer experience or on a mouse that isn't working properly?
