Statement of the problem

The study aims to compare the computer based- examination and the

paper and pencil test in the Nursing Informatics class of BSN Batch 2014

students.

Specifically it aims to answer the following questions:

1. What are the performances of the control group in the paper and

pencil test during the pre and post intervention phase?


2. What are the performances of the experimental group in the

computer based examination (CBE) during the pre and post

intervention phase?
3. How do the performances of the control group differ with the

performances of the experimental group?


4. How do the computer- based exam compared with the paper and

pencil test?

Hypotheses

There is no significant difference in the performances of the control

group and the experimental group.

Significance of the Study

The result of the study may provide great significance to the following:

Respondents. This study could aid in the improvement of examination by

evaluating the response of the students on computer based exam and paper

and pencil examination their preferences, advantages and disadvantages.


Professor and University. This study will help the College and the Professors to

evaluate the effectiveness of the computer based exam (CBE) This study would

evaluate the performance of students in CBE.

Researchers. The researchers would become aware of the effectiveness of the

Computer Based Examinations used in nursing informatics class.

Future Researchers. The study will provide future researchers data on the

effectiveness of computer based examination.

Scope and Limitation

The researcher will compare CBE and paper pencil test in Nursign

Informatics class of BSN Batch 2014. The research will be conducted on Centro

Escolar University, College of nursing Manila. The research will be limited to

Batch 2014 Students of the College of Nursing enrolled in Nursing Informatics

class in summer 2012.
