Abstract

Computer-Based test is key to testing the achievement performance of students as well as meeting up with the educational standards across the world. This study investigated the perceived influence of computerbased test on undergraduates’ lecture attendance in Ogun State, Nigeria. The descriptive survey research design was adopted. The population comprised of students of Tai Solarin University of Education, Ijebu-Ode, Olabisi Onabanjo University, Ago-Iwoye, and Federal University of Agriculture, Abeokuta, all in Ogun State. The simple random sampling technique was used to select six hundred (600) students from the total population of students in the selected schools using Taro Yamane sampling size (200 from each university). Instrument titled “Computer-Based Test and Lecture Attendance Questionnaire (CBTLAQ)” (r = 0.79) was used for data collection and data were analyzed mean, standard deviations, Regression analysis and t-test statistics at 0.05 level of significance. Findings showed that ComputerBased Test influences undergraduates’ lecture attendance (? = .807; p ? 0.05). Also, significant difference exists in the lecture attendance of male and female undergraduates (t-cal = 13.071; p < 0.05). It was recommended that schools should invest in CBTs for institutional efficiency and ensure that students are provided with the CBT-based gadgets which can enhance their regularity in class.
