Current Conceptions of Test-Wiseness: Myths and Realities

pp. 339—350

ABSTRACT: The popular conception of test-wiseness is reviewed and evaluated. Although some support for the concept of test-wiseness exists, in general the influence of test-wiseness has been greatly overestimated particularly with respect to: (a) contribution to measurement error, (b) cultural differences, (c) independence from general intelligence, and (d) facility for training. This article places common statements regarding test-wiseness in perspective of actual research findings.
