Background of the problem

Computerized testing has been identified by many researchers. Some Universities and Colleges stated their computerized testing has shown reducing testing time, to obtain more information about test takers, and to provide instant scoring. Computer-based testing delivery and administration services are primarily delivering high-stakes computer-based test. It is from point to point, to expand the scope of the items to include accessibility.

Therefore, the advantages of test takers are not clear. Since, test taking can possibly affect testing scores, some researchers have found no effect on test performance and believe these factors should not affect the equality of pencil-and-paper test. A paper and Pencil test, non computerized form, is considered to be taking the exact same test using a paper test booklet and writing answers in a testing booklet. In this study testing level is defined as being the sense of apprehension, doubt, fear, and uneasiness pertaining to testing. In agreement of this study, showed no differences in test performance between pencil-and-paper test and computer-based testing, but there was a significant differences in anxiety levels toward the test.

The researchers wanted to find out the possibility of developing such computerized system within the office. The researcher encourage to conduct such research study on the possibility of developing An Assessment Battery Examination for High School of San Mateo Vocational And Industrial High School, to do act the present system, which is the manual system to an authorized or computerized system in order for them to have fast transaction.
