Power, M. and Verbyla, D., Australian Council for Educational Research, Australia
The authors consider the factors critical to the establishment of an appropriate framework for the translation of established paper and pencil tests to electronic delivery. Issues such as security, access, and retention of appropriate psychometric standards are considered. Difficulties encountered and rationale for addressing and resolving these are discussed. Instruments in both the recruitment and selection arena as well as psychological/diagnostic tools are included.
