Abstract

This paper reports the findings of an investigation of children's performance and attitude towards a paper based and computer based test. Twenty children, aged between 7 and 8 of mixed gender, participated in this study using a commercial software application. The children's attitude towards the software was captured through the use of a smarty-o-meter to indicate their level of preference and the performance was based on their tests scores. The conclusions highlight the children's preference for using computer in their assessment and shows that there was no difference in performance between the two test modes.
