The character of interviewer–respondent interaction and rapport is shaped by the cognitive demands of assessment and the distinctive ecological setting of the household.Research limitations/implicationsObservational data on assessment response processes and interaction in real-life assessments can be integrated into and synthesized with other sources of “process data”.Practical implicationsAssessment programs such as PIAAC should consider the significance of the household setting on assessment quality and observations of interaction in assessment as a valid source of paradata.Social implicationsThere is a place for small-scale observational studies of assessment to inform public understanding of assessment quality and validity.Originality/valueThe paper provides qualitative insights into the significance of interaction and “interviewer effects” in household assessment settings.
