Abstract

Time, as related to performance in testing environments, was the focus of the present study. In addition, computer anxiety and computer attitudes toward a different mode for testing student knowledge were examined. Subjects were Psychology 1300 students (~ = 141) participating in a computerized testing course. In an effort to obtain objective research evidence on human response time and problem-solving behavior, the concept of "forced lockout" was used. The primary hypothesis stated that the students in the lockout conditions would achieve higher total quiz scores than students in the no lockout condition. This hypothesis was supported for female students, but not for male students.
