There are several environmental factors that can potentially affect the accuracy of the test. Please make sure the testing room is properly prepared prior to administering a test.
These suggestions come from the Converus science team:
- Room should be dimly lit. Bright lights can affect pupil dilation measurements and/or cause reflections on the screen that can affect the results.
- Please note that the room should not be completely dark, as this may affect the examinee’s ability to see the keyboard or accurately respond to test questions.
- Do not use uncovered fluorescent lights. Overhead fluorescent lights affect the accuracy of the eye tracker.
- Do use indirect lighting. Lights should not shine directly on the examinee or the EyeDetect station.
- Windows should be covered. Dark curtains or dark paper should cover any windows in the room.
- Desk and workstation are positioned correctly. Lights or windows should be directly behind the examinee should be avoided.
