Computer vs Paper Assessments

Here is a very interesting study I found on assessments. I have included a very brief synopsis of the article, which is quite lengthly but a fascinating examination of how student respond to testing modalities. It is featured in, The Journal of Technology, Learning, and Assessment Vol. 6, Num. 3 Nov. 2007, titled, Examining Differences in Examinee Performance in Paper and Pencil and Computerized Testing.

Interesting article. In Adams 14 we haven't done hard research, but we have not found 2nd grade MAP data to be a reliable indicator of student performance. Our hunch has been that students have lacked the familiarity with computers. The summary suggests that variable must be considered.
