Abstract:

The purpose of the study was to investigate whether differences in motivational conditions associated with test administration affect individual performance. Previous research has shown that conditions of administration can influence group performance on written tests. Results from an experimental battery administered under four different instructional conditions were compared for Category 4, non-4, black, and non-black subgroups.
