Benefits of Computerized Exam
Because of this method of creation, the test’s scoring and assessment criteria are identical to those of tests marked by humans, such the IELTS or OET. Computers do not experience some of the problems that people do, though, so that is a plus! Every time, computer algorithms act exactly the same. They don’t experience subjectivity, they don’t get tired sometimes, they don’t get distracted and they don’t make mistakes! You can see how employing a machine ensures that the scoring is 100% accurate. Of course, since they are professionals and specialists in their subject, human language test assessors would not generally tolerate such lapses.
Additionally, since there is only one assessor—the computer—there is no chance of any variation in how papers are assessed based on the assessor who marks them.
