Although Kryterion's central mission is to make compute-based testing more efficient, streamlined, easy to manage and cost effective, we recognize that there are situations where paper and pencil testing is the best option. For this reason, and to make it possible to manage all your tests through one easy to use system, Webassessor™ makes it possible to create, administer and manage the results of paper and pencil tests alongside all the other test delivery methods we offer.
Paper and pencil testing is typically used when a large number of people are together in one location and are being tested at the same time, such as an annual conference. This makes computer-based testing very expensive. Another scenario where paper and pencil testing is appropriate would be at the end of a training session where computers are not available or for one off test takers that don't have access to computers or the Internet.
