Electronic Versus Paper-based Testing in Education
The introduction of computers into classrooms has provided most educators with the ability to use computer-aided, electronic tests for their students. However, there are issues and concerns related to computer-aided s, which have a different look and feel (interface) in comparison to the standard paper and pencil format used in past years to test student knowledge. Instead of a number 2 pencil and a bubble sheet, students today are often presented with a monitor and a mouse in the computer-based testing (CBT) environment and asked to submit answers with a click of the mouse while reading questions on a computer monitor. Questions concerning validity and the reliability of computer-aided tests will be discussed as well as electronic testing trends.
