The disavantages of group intelligence tests include that.

  • Psychology -

    Advantages of group tests:

    can be administered to very large numbers simultaneously

    simplified examiner role

    scoring typically more objective

    large, representative samples often used leading to better established norms

    Disadvantages of group tests:

    examiner has less opportunity to establish rapport, obtain cooperation, and maintain interest

    not readily detected if examinee tired, anxious, unwell

    evidence that emotionally disturbed children do better on individual than group tests

    examinee�s responses more restricted

    normally an individual is tested on all items in a group test and may become boredom over easy items and frustrated or anxious over difficult items

    individual tests typically provide for the examiner to choose items based on the test takers prior responses - moving onto quite difficult items or back to easier items. So individual tests offer more flexibility.
