The Embedded Figures Test (EFT) is an individually administered test which was developed to assess field dependence and field independence.
In the test there are 24 figures which are presented in 2 sets of 12 cards with complex figures and a set of 8 cards with simple figures. Each complex figure includes an embedded simple figure, which the subject is to identify as quickly as possible. Presentation is timed with a three minute limit .
According to Bonham (1987), the EFT was adapted from Gottschaldt's figures by adding colored patterns to increase complexity.
