Abstract:This study examined whether the medium used and the condition in which a test is made are of influence on the outcome of an intelligence test. In order to examine this, an intelligence test, which was under construction, was used. This test was made in a proctored setting and in an unproctored setting and as well as on paper and online. The proctored test took place under supervision of a supervisor, who was not present in the unproctored setting. A total of 1815 respondents completed the whole test. Using these data a t-test for independent pairs was used to examine the means of these groups and the effect size was calculated using Cohen’s d. The results showed that people in the proctored setting had mean scores that were higher than the scores of the people in the unproctored setting. In addition the scores of the paper test were on average higher than the scores on the online test. Implications of the results as well as the side notes are described in the discussion.
