Introduction to Computer Based Test (CBT)

From those who do not know this already, Computer Based Test (CBT) is a modern testing procedure where each candidate answers their question directly on a computer system.

CBT is different from the conventional paper and pencil based testing where examinee will have to answer their questions using a paper and a pencil. The traditional way is known as Paper Pencil Test, (PPT)

Computer Based Test, CBT requires the participant to have basic computer knowledge of computer, which involves appreciation of common computer desktop icons, basic mouse use, as well as understanding important navigation arrows/keyboards.

Timing in CBT

Apart from writing the examination on a computer/Laptop, the arrangement of the exams with respect to timing and level of precision also differs with the traditional way of testing.

With Computer-Based Testing, your time is set and when it is over, your Computer will automatically shut down.

Features Of JAMB CBT (Computer Based Test)

Below you will find the complete feature of the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board, JAMB CBT.

Each Candidate Has His Own Computer:

This is really great and of great test, in the JAMB CBT examination. Since every candidate will be given a computer each, malpractice is completely wipe out. So with this new development, every student and candidate who are eager to sit for JAMB MUST enter the examination hall only with the approved examination materials.

The computer will be as close as your mobile phone, so all the candidate will sit close to the computer system, maybe a laptop computer or a desktop computer.

It is compulsory that you must be prepared by looking at the computer directly and immediately on the command by invigilators which will be detected as “START” you are advised to commence writing or you will be behind the bars.

You know that some Exams like the ones mostly administered by PEARSON are strictly on computer based while some others may be dual, for example, you will be given both computer and paper.

In the latter, the students or examinee is given examination question paper and they will be required to answer their questions on the computer unlike the former, the students or the examinee are not given any question paper. Here the questions are on the computer screen while the examinee chooses their see mingy correct answers by right clicking the RADION BUTTON.

What You Must Know about Computer Based Test?

It is vulnerable that we know that all computer desktops contain icons for simple computer user interaction with the computer system. It uses the WYSIWYG theory. i.e what you see is what you get.

But depending on the type of test, the computer screen might be preset to the START page where the examinee will just have to fill in their personal details which are sometimes part of the exams itself.

All You Need to know about for Computer Based Test (CBT) Desktop icons

The START Button :

Here is actually the time that every exam commences on the command “START” and the time that the exam ends is the “STOP” button. Examinees should be very watchful of this button because there are very important.

(b) Your time Starts Counting:

This is another great and self cautious period, when you will be asked to start, and also note that, the clock timer begins immediately to count, so if you are dull please get prepared and it also shows the progress of the exams.

One thing that made it important is when you are rounding up and when you are almost true, all you have to do is to just take a gaze at the time and see for yourself.

(c) Questions Bar:

Another thing that marvels me most is that you will be indicated how many questions you have answered and how many are remaining.

This is to show that every question has time, it is not the time to answer question but it how many questions you have been able to attend to at that particular time, so if out of 10 questions, and you answered just 2, the question shows something like this 2 of 10. Which means you have to answer the remain 8 questions

(d) Navigations:

You might be surprised but you don’t have to be because every stage in life has navigations, so as CBT, it navigation, you can navigate through everything and everywhere all around during the text. Below is what all the navigation implies…

*. The “NEXT” buttons are always used to go through the next question when clicked, hence, clicking next moves you the next screen

*. The “PREVIOUS” buttons also gives you the examinee the opportunity to go back to earlier answered question, so if you have unfortunately changed your mind towards the apparently correct answer.

Hence, pressing on PREVIOUS buttons takes you immediately back to time where you will be allowed to edit and change your answers which will required a Go-back-one screen,

*. This is one of the most powerful button attached to CBT exams, the “SUBMIT” buttons is one of the most important buttons but the thing is that, if you get it clicked once, it shows that you are true, and you MUST cross checked your work by navigating through it unless you want score yourself.

And I don’t think it can be redone, so before clicking on it, you have to re think first. And after clicking submit button, it most times closes the exam window

The Scroll Bar:

Some test may not fit on the screen. For these questions, a scroll bar will appear. To reveal the rest of the questions, either you use the mouse to click drag the scroll bar or click on the arrows on either end of the scroll bar.

How to Answer CBT Examination Correctly

I think it is necessary for us to ask ourselves this hilarious question, which goes like “How Do You Choose the Correct Answers” Most times, the questions in computer based test are in the multi-choice format.

This is called multi Choice Question where you will be required to pick the correct answer(s). For instance something like this appears on your screen:
Solve for y.
y – 2 + 3y = 10
A. 6
B. 5
C. 4
D. 3
E. 2

You select one of the best answers by: Pressing the letter on the keyboard, Clicking the radio button with a mouse, or Use the Tab Key to move through the options and then pressing the space-bar to select an option.
