Quiet And Seclusion

The tests should be conducted in a quiet room, located where the noises of
the street and other outside distractions cannot enter. A reasonably small room
is better than a very large one, because it is more homelike. The furnishings of
the room should be simple. A table and two chairs are sufficient. If the room contains
a number of unfamiliar objects, such as psychological apparatus, pictures
on the walls, etc., the attention of the child is likely to be drawn
away from the tasks which he is given to do. The halls and corridors
which it is sometimes necessary to use in testing school children are
usually noisy, cold, or otherwise objectionable.
