This study examined the effects of computer presentation
on speeded clerical tests. Two ratio scores-average number of correct responses per minute and
its inverse, average number of seconds per correct response-were examined as variants of the conventional
score, number of correct responses in a fixed interval
of time. Ratio scores were more reliable than
number-correct scores and were less sensitive to testing
time. Tests administered on the computer were
found to be at least as reliable as conventionally administered
tests, but examinees were much faster in
the computer mode. Correlations between paper-and-pencil
and computer modes were high, except when
task differences were introduced by computer implementation.
