Developing Computerized Assessment for Young Children.
Bronson, Martha B.
This report described a feasibility study designed to investigate the utility of interactive videodisc technology in testing preschool children. Computer assisted testing permits test administration with minimal training for personnel, high quality control in administration procedures, and immediate scoring and feedback. The combination of an optical laser videodisc with a computer could provide additional, more versatile storage and branching capacities; rapid, random access to still frames and motion segments; and high quality visual display. The preschool children in the study responded well to the video presentations. They enjoyed the testing situation and seemed more interested, and less stressed, than they had been with human test administrators. (DWH)
