Area of research / Subject: The Juxtaposition of Analogue and Digital Strategies in Mathematics Examinations: A Case for Blended Approach

This study sought to establish the invaluableness of blended approach by comparing the outcomes of Computer-Based (CBE) with Paper-Based Examinations (PBE) in post-secondary level of Education. Descriptive survey research design was adopted for the study. The population for the study comprised of the 528 GSE113 students in the school of Science for the year 2017/2018 and 2018/2019 sessions of Ikere College of Education, Ikere Ekiti, Nigeria.  478 students’ results were purposively selected as the sample for this study.  The two different results were compares and it was observed that students perform better in manual examination (PBE) than E-examination (CBE) despite several researches that have established the effectiveness of computer-based over paper-based (analogue) examinations. Besides, the results of male students were compared with females’ results in both side. It was observed that gender has effect on performance of students in PBE but has no effect on students’ performance in CBE. Consequent to the findings of the study, it was recommended that blended approach which combines the two methods should be engaged especially for subjects that are majorly of calculations such as Mathematics. Also learners’ opinion should be considered on the type of examination preferred; either CBE or manual, especially in Mathematics courses.
