The effects of auditory distraction on intelligence test performance was examined for 19 children over a 21-day test-retest interval. A 2 (First/Second Administration) x 2 (Distraction/No Distraction) randomized design was used. Each subject was tested under both conditions with the order of administration counterbalanced. A test/retest effect was observed in that generally higher scores were obtained on the second administration. An interaction was observed between Order of Administration and Distraction in which noise resulted in an overall detrimental effect on intelligence test performance.
