The researcher investigated the view of undergraduates on the use of computer for examination and also their attitudes towards its usage for examination. The researcher also invested whether gender has an influence on undergraduates’ views and attitudes toward computer examination and also, whether Faculties has an influence on undergraduates’ views and attitudes toward computer examination.

The research is a descriptive research of the survey type. Hence, data were gathered with the use of a research designed questionnaire and then analyzed using percentages, mean and t-test. The target population consisted of students of two faculties in the University of Ilorin, Faculty of Education and Faculty of Communication and Information Science (CIS). A total of one hundred (100) respondents were selected randomly, with fifty (50) from each of the selected faculties and across all levels.

The findings of this research indicated that:
  1. Undergraduates’ view towards the use of computer devices is positive. This was reflected in the Grand mean of 3.02 which is greater than the average mean score of 2.50.
  2. Undergraduates’ attitude towards the use of computer devices is positive. This was reflected in the Grand mean of 2.79 which is also greater than the average mean score of 2.50.
  3. There is no significant difference in the views of male and female Students towards the useof CBT for examination in the University of Ilorin.
  4. There is a significant difference in the attitudes of male and female Students towards the use of CBT for examination in the University of Ilorin.

Conclusion drawn from the finding indicated that undergraduates’ views and attitudes on the use of computer for examination is positive. However, undergraduates believe the use of CBT for examination still has lots to be improved on due to the level of coordination, frustrating procedures and lesser time allotment. Their attitudes towards the use of CBT for examination is also positive as they prefer using it for examination than using paper and pencil test (PPT).
