Abstract

Changes from traditional face-to-face to internet-delivered psychological assessment are urgently needed given
the long-lasting pandemic, the general need for fast and efficient tests and test procedures, and easier availability
and access for test-takers in remote settings. We used a quasi-experimental non-randomized group design for the
comparison of two word fluency test procedures: one traditional that is face-to-face (n = 30) and one supervised
via internet (n = 30). Participants were 17-31 years, education level high school and Bachelor. The letters S, K, T
were used for the phonemic fluency test, for the emotion word fluency test subjects had to generate words related
to subjective emotional feelings or the expression of emotions. The results showed that traditional administered
and internet-delivered testing are equivalent (our hypothesis) as seen from the absence of significant differences
between the two groups in the performances of all four word fluency tests (p > .05) and small effect sizes (Cohen’s
d range < .5). Significant correlations were found between the fluency tasks, irrespective of the way of test
administration (p < .05). It can be concluded that the word fluency tasks can be assessed by supervised internet-
delivered testing, but this is limited to a sample of young adults.
