The impact of eye contact by the examiner versus no eye contact during administration of the Digit Span subtest of the third edition of the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children (WISC-III) was studied with 43 children with a range of diagnoses. Performance was not affected by eye contact, because respondents generally avoided it even when attempted. (SLD)
