Abstract

Computerized testing offers many advantages over paper and pencil exams. Advantages can include increased security, greater availability of the exam, rapid scoring, and reduced administrative costs. Possible disadvantages can include the need for computer hardware and software, computer glitches, and computer anxiety. This chapter discusses the advantages and disadvantages of computerized testing followed by a description of the experience of a state-based dental board as they transitioned from a paper and pencil exam to a computerized exam.
