EFFECT OF COMPUTER BASE TEST AND GEOGRAPHY EDUCATION

CHAPTER ONE

1.1  Background To The Study

 computer base test is referred to as  a method of administering test in which the response are electronically recorded, assessed or both. It is also called computer base assessment, computerized testing or computer administered test.computer based assessment involves the use Of a computer or an equivalent electronic device. Computer base system  facilitate trainers and educators author, schedule, deliver and report, examinations ,surveys,quizzes,test.computer based assessment could  be  a stand alone  system or  considered  as  part  of a virtual learning environment located through the  via the world wide web. virtual learning environment  can be accessed   and provides a collection of tools such as  multiple  choice test.

The different types of computer based assessment in use today in our higher institution include formative self-test, summative final examination. CBA is applied in various ways as an integral part of many currently used computer aided learning. The benefit of using computer base assessment  include reduce marking load for staff and a closer match between assessment and learning environment; and  rapid formative feedback to the students , (Brown,Rall,and Bull 1999). CBA also improve  the performance of students in summative assessment .This is also supported by Ricketts and wilks (2002)  who maintained  that the  introduction of online  assessment was to improve students performance through more frequent assessment using on line testing  feedback. Presently in Nigeria  CBA is used in higher institutions for post university, polytechnic and college of education matriculation and semester examination. The research intends to investigate Effect of computer base test and  geography education

 

 

1.2  Statement of the Problem

The use of CBA is confronted by several challenges including cost of infrastructure installation and maintenance. Low level of computer appreciation among many intended users; poor level of power supply, privacy and security issues etc. The use of computer base assessment constitutes a development in education to enhance improvement in methodology of delivery and implementation. However the extent of its application and implementation is yet to be fully explored. The research intends to proffer an assessment of the  Effect of computer base test and  geography education
