An Evaluation of a Computer-Based Intelligence Test.
Hedl, John Joseph, Jr.
A study demonstrated the feasibility, reliability and validity of a computer-administered intelligence test. The computer-based test (Slosson Intelligence Test) was compared with a conventional examiner-administered test given to the same college students within the same week. In addition it was evaluated as a predictor of college grade point average. It scored high in both tests, being the best predictor of future college grade point average. The computer testing experience, however, led to higher levels of anxiety than normal examiner testing sessions. The attitudinal and anxiety data presented indicate that there might be a complex interaction between the nature of the test and the quality of the computer programing procedures that in turn determines the affective response.
