The rating of perceived exertion scale is used to assess an athlete's overall exertion during a cognitive task that captures how hard they feel they have been made to work. It is an integration of various central and peripheral feelings, such as sweating, breathing, and muscle tension.

This scale is useful for obtaining feedback from an athlete of how they are perceiving their exertion levels when performing a cognitive task. This scale is best used when the athlete is combining their physical and cognitive training.
