We recently completed our first pilot of computer-based testing in a number of schools around the country. Here are some student comments on their experience of online testing with the ERC.
I thought that the maths test was very difficult as I struggle with maths. But I do think that it was a lot more interesting than a normal paper exam.

The test was just right there was a couple of hard questions. I thought it was fun and different. I prefer having tests on computers. 10/10

I thought the test was good and its very progressive for a test to be on a computer. I am a fan of the way its on pc.

I like that you can only see one question at a time. It helps me to focus on it.

I prefer paper tests because it’s easier to copy what the person next to you is doing.
