Abstract

Olafare Festus Oladimeji and Boor Charity Mwuese H

The influence of Computer Based Test (CBT) on student’s academic performance has received little or no attention of researchers but students in Nigerian Universities are now performing better than the era of paper based test. Hence, this study examined CBT as panacea to undergraduate students’ academic performance. Descriptive research design was used for the study. A researcher designed questionnaire was used for the study. The reliability coefficient of the instrument was 0.77 using Cronbach Alpha. A total of 125 undergraduates were selected for the study but 115 filled the questionnaire properly and returned. Analysis of data was done with descriptive statistics (mean and standard deviation). The study revealed that though CBT had positive influence on undergraduate students’ performance, it is saddled with a lot of challenges. The study recommended that adequate facilities should be made available, as well as enforcing Government policy on computer education at the primary and secondary school levels to ensure that all students are computer-literate.
