Exploration of Children's Test Behavior during iPad-Administered Intelligence Testing
Castro, Connie J.; Viezel, Kathleen; Dumont, Ron; Guiney, Meaghan
Journal of Psychoeducational Assessment, v37 n1 p3-13 Feb 2019
This study examined recent technological developments in cognitive assessment and how these developments impact children's test behavior. The study consisted of two groups: one tested with an iPad and another tested with the standard paper and pencil format of the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children (WISC-IV). Independent groups t tests examining the empirically based syndrome and broad scales on the Test Observation Form yielded no significant results. There did not appear to be differences in test behavior between the two groups. Overall, examiners can be more confident that whether they conduct intellectual testing via traditional paper and pencil or via iPad, children's test behaviors do not appear to be negatively influenced by test format.
