Abstract

A wide range of decision points is described in determining if, how, and when an assessment program should be transitioned from paper and pencil administration to computer-based delivery. The key factors in making effective strategic policy decisions regarding a transition are described on the basis of experiences gained in conducting feasibility studies over the past decade. The feasibility study is conceptualized as a five-phase, partially sequential process in which information learned in one phase can trigger reinterpretation of previous understandings and impact directions taken in subsequent phases. No claim is made that the conduct of a feasibility study will guarantee a seamless transition; instead, a strategic roadmap is provided for navigating bumps in the transition road.
