Knowledgebase: Test Administration
When administering tests in a supervised manner, how many respondents can I have in the room per administrator?

The ratio of a test administrator to respondents is 1:10. Therefore, 1 test administrator can administer the test to 10 people in one setting. If more than 10 respondents are present, then additional test administrators are needed.  This ensures ethical requirements are met and standardization of administration is achieved. It also prevents candidates from looking at each other's responses, talking to each other etc.
