Background and Aim: The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of two types of paper-based and computer-based assessment methods on learners' assessment results in the final score of learners.
Materials and Methods: Considering the language test of the Ministry of Health and Medical Education, we analyzed and evaluated the test with both types of assessment tools at the same time and with the same questions. For this purpose, and to reduce sampling error, select five periods of this test, both simultaneous on paper and computer-based, and use psychometric indices such as difficulty coefficient, clean coefficient and Richardson Coder reliability index, Calculate and inferential statistics using Mann-Whitney tests, analysis of variance and effect size index (2η) using SPSS software and at the significant level of ۰۵2 we analyze, compare the results of the volunteers.
Results: The results show that the psychometric indices of the exams are better than the paper-based type in different exam periods. Also, the mean scores of participants ranged from 2.2 to 0.54 in periods 3 and 5, respectively, between the computer-based and paper-based tests. Except for period 3 tests, the scores of other tests followed the same distribution in computer-based and paper-based types.
Conclusion: The results of the analysis show that with the same test questions, in computer-based tests, compared to its paper-based counterpart, they generally achieved better results, while differentiating the coefficient of type-based tests. On the computer, it's been better.
