Computer anxiety is defined as: ‘an irrational anticipation of fear evoked by the thought of using (or actually using) computers, the effects of which result in avoiding, or minimizing, computer usage’ (Brosnan, 1998a,p 17). Computer anxiety can manifest itself from a feeling of mild discomfort through to palpitations and panic attacks when using a computer. There has been a great deal of research into the causes and correlates of computer anxiety, prompting Modafsky and Kwon (1994) to assert that ‘computer anxiety is a real phenomenon’ and, with the increasing role of computers within education, that ‘lessening the resistance to computer technology is more important than ever before’.

Avoid verbal clues, which may enable students to select the correct answer or eliminate an incorrect alternative. 9. Make all the responses in a question approximately the same length. If one response item is longer than the others, this can give a clue that it is the correct answer. 10. Avoid the use of ‘all of the above’ and ‘none of the above’. These will often enable the student to answer correctly on the basis of partial information: if the student detects that two of the answers are correct, it is possible to deduce that the correct answer is ‘all of the above’ and if he or she detects one incorrect answer, it is possible to reject it on the basis of partial information.

List alternatives on separate lines and use letters before them rather than numbers. If the stem is an incomplete statement then the choices should begin with lower case letters and end with a question mark. The above are guidelines and not cast-iron rules. From time to time you may wish to modify the above procedures to obtain a particular effect. All assessment instruments need to relate to the course curriculum and the proposed learning outcomes. The use of objective testing requires that relationship to become more open and explicit.
