Is computerized testing worth it? With technology evolving, many schools have replaced paper tests with computers. Studies have proven that standardized tests raise stress levels. Does adding computers to the mix make people more stressed? Let’s see what these people think…

Cameron C. has strong opinions. Here are some of them. ”I think computerized testing is amazing, it helps me focus. I think I do better on paper tests. I would rather take tests in my iPad though.”

Josh K. – “I don’t like computerized testing because some kids aren’t good at typing so they fail because they can’t type. I like paper tests.”

Minali B. – “I don’t like computerized testing. Glitches may happen and I get stressed out. I hate paper testing even though I think I do better at paper testing. I would rather use pencils than my iPad.”

Angelina T. – “I like computerized testing, but sometimes the glitches makes it hard to use. The typing part is better because your hands don’t get as tired. I am less stressed on a computer, I also think I do better at computerized tests.”

Mr. Clinkman – “Computerized testing makes some things easier, but creates other problems, like glitches and they are hard to implement. On the other hand there is less paper and it is graded instantly. I don’t think one causes more stress than the other. I, as a student, would rather use paper though.”

Mrs. Casaccio – “I think reading is easier on paper. I like computers for grading and ease, but I think taking tests are more natural on paper.”

As proven above, the majority of people prefer paper testing rather than computerized testing. Even though this is true we got very mixed opinions.
