Published in the Personnel Testing Council of Metropolitan Washington (PTC/MW) Quarterly Newsletter, March 2007, by Greg Beatty, Ph.D., of ICF International. This article reviews the layout factors to consider when taking paper-based tests that are used for hiring or promotion and converting them to an on-line environment. The implications of changes in layout shape and length, and the inability to see more than one page at a time are examined, and options for overcoming the differences are offered. Advantages of on-line tests over paper-based tests are also reviewed.
