Functionality The system is a network-based system; it has a server side and a client side. The server part of the system will manage all of the questions, for security reasons the administrator of the system is one who can add, update and delete the test questions.
Comparability of Paper-Based and Computer-Based Testing Prometric has extensive experience in transitioning programs from paper-based delivery to computer-based delivery. The test development department is staffed with psychometricians who have directly participated in the research and application of methodologies to help ensure minimal impact on candidate performance during such a transition.
Research As computer-based testing CBT has become extremely prolific in the last years, the amount of industry research on the comparability between paper-based and computer-based exams has grown considerably.
As would be expected, research findings that were common at the initial introduction of computers into the testing population are no longer relevant to the candidate populations entering the testing environment today. As candidate populations have evolved in their exposure, access, and familiarity with computers, effects of the introduction of computer-based exams has reduced substantially.
This has been true across the multiple candidate segments, as availability of computers has increased exponentially across all population subgroups.
In summarizing the findings of the multiple studies in the last years most recent being conducted inthe main points identified in the research area as follows: Differential Item Functionality DIF analysis on individual items that are delivered on paper-based versus computer-based typically indicate that when item types are conducive to both delivery methodologies, the performance on items in both delivery channels is comparable.
Clear communication to the candidate pool regarding computer-based exam delivery can further decrease the chance of the delivery mode impacting final candidate performance. In addition to the theoretical research available in within the testing industry, Prometric also has practical experience in the evaluation and comparison of candidate performance across multiple delivery channels.
We have successfully migrated a large number of clients from one delivery mode to another and have consistently evaluated candidate performance to ensure that all candidates are provided a fair opportunity to display their knowledge independent of the channel being used.
In addition, Prometric has a number of clients that use a dual delivery model both paper-based and computer-basedwhich also allows for the continual monitoring of comparability of exam performance and individual item performance across the multiple testing environments.
Prometric's findings consistently mirror those noted above from the general testing community and we have been able to develop and advance approaches that assure the desired result. Practice In migrating an examination programs, there are several steps that should be considered.
Although there are a large number of individual tasks, the major activities include the following: Evaluation of current item bank An evaluation of the current paper-based item bank is typically done at the beginning of the project to ensure the applicability to a computer-based environment and to gather baseline statistics for future evaluation.
Modification of item presentation If necessary, Prometric makes recommendations on individual item modifications to increase the likelihood of equitable performance on the overall exam in a computer-based environment.
Prepare a communication effort to the candidates Prometric works with clients to ensure that an appropriate communication campaign is developed for the candidate population prior to the introduction of a new delivery model. Exam and item analysis Using the baseline data collected in step 2, Prometric will evaluate exam and item level performance to ensure comparability of candidate performance.
Continual monitoring and maintenance Evaluation of the delivery model does not stop after initial confirmation of comparability. Prometric psychometricians will continually monitor the performance of the USPS items and exams to ensure that they are performing within acceptable statistical parameters and to forecast future test development needs.
Prometric embeds the methodologies above within our test development and delivery processes to ensure a fair, valid, and legally defensible process for all candidates.
Our experience with successfully implementing computer-based exams is matched by our proven processes for ensuring quality of product and performance throughout the lifecycle of the exams.Advantages & Disadvantages Of Having Exams 1.

Introduction!! An exam is an official test of knowledge. We have exams everywhere around the world. Youngs and adults can have . The CPS consists of Procedure eXecution System (PXS), and Engineering System (ES) including procedure editor (PED) and Non-Integrated System Test System (NISTS).
The PXS is the execution system for the procedure provided to the operators and has the following functions. Scope And Limitation Web-Based Student Accounts and Record management system for Lupon Vocational High School Data duplication: the same data gets repeated over and over since the workers find it hard to keep track of the documents, information and transactions Lack of security: since data is stored in filing cabinets it is freely available to anyone.

Problem Statement: Computerized adaptive testing (CAT) is a sophisticated and efficient way of delivering examinations. In CAT, items for each examinee are selected from an item bank based on the examinee's responses to the items.
