It is advised that the parents should not be present with their children when they are about to take the stream selector test. This is so because; parents might end up adding additional pressure on the child. This can most likely end up disturbing or altering his or her test results and choices. Every answer the child gives will be doubtful for him or her because of the superior presence that is constantly beside them. What is worst is if the parent is reactive or interruptive to every answer the child tries to give.
This test is designed solely for the child who is taking it. If a parent interrupts or is present with the child, it becomes a test for the parent as well. Since the mind is intrigued by most of the things our eyes see, the parent is more likely to interrupt even if he or she does not want to.
However, if parents do want to sit with their child, which they ideally should not, it is recommended that they sit away from the computer as well as the child. This will make sure that the child is not afraid of the parent looking and judging their answers constantly. Not only will it otherwise, slow him down but it will also alter his answers to something that his or her parents expect rather that what he or she wants. The parents can guide them until the test starts if they want to.
Therefore, no, it is not recommended that parents be present at the time of the test. In fact, it is ideal if no one is present while the child is taking the test. This way the child stays true to his answers and does so with his own interests in mind and aptitude at work.
