Proctor Personality Characteristics and Effectiveness in a PSI Course.
Henneberry, John K.
Analysis of data indicates that there are no statistically significant personality variable differences between (1) proctor candidates versus all the students who did not apply and (2) between students selected to be proctors compared to those not selected. Academic variables seem to be the determining factor in both application and selection. But both academic and personality factors are positively related to proctor success, based on the use of average gain quotient as the effectiveness criterion. Flexibility, a sense of personal adequacy, the ability to cope with test-taking anxiety, and comfortableness in interactions with peers of both sexes seem to be useful criteria in the selection of proctors.
