This research reported teachers' perceptions about computer-based (CB) vs. paper-based (PB) examinations. Teachers were divided into 7 major categories i.e., gender, departments, designations, qualifications, teaching experiences, computer training certifications and CB examination experiences, which were the key factors to be observed and analyzed to perceive teachers' attitude regarding CB or PB examinations. It was concluded from the results that overall sampled teachers' attitudes were positive towards CB examination systems but in some situations they preferred PB as well. Comparatively female, highly ranked, highly qualified, less experienced, teachers who have computer training certificate or degree, and teachers who have CB examination experiences were more positive towards CB examinations.
