Abstract

Three hundred and seventy-three older normal persons rated their reactions to traditional testing versus computer-based testing in an effort to examine whether older persons are less accepting of computerized assessment techniques. Neither approach was rated as very similar to, or dissimilar from, 'activities I do often'. Traditional approaches were slightly better 'enjoyed' and also perceived as slightly more 'reasonable ways to evaluate reasoning and memory.'
