Comparison of Student Performance in Paper-Based versus Computer-Based Testing
Anakwe, Bridget
Journal of Education for Business, v84 n1 p13-17 Sep-Oct 2008
The author investigated the impact of assessment methods on student performance on accounting tests. Specifically, the author used analysis of variance to determine whether the use of computer-based tests instead of paper-based tests affects students' traditional test scores in accounting examinations. The author included 2 independent variables, student gender and student class, as covariates. The findings indicate that there was no significant difference in the values of the students' performance according to the 2 methods of assessment. The findings also revealed that neither student gender nor class was correlated to the test scores in either form of testing. (Contains 3 tables.)
