IPA will create a "washback effect." According to Adair-Hauck et al., "The washback effect will impact instruction and can inform and improve the curriculum, teaching and learning practices beyond the test," (Adair-Hauck et al., 2006).

According to Davin et al., "Consistent findings show highest levels of performance on the interpersonal task," (Davin et al., 2011).
