I would be interested as well

This is one of my topics, although I doubt I will more than hint at it, for my talk at PTC - NC.

I have started to put some lists together, as I get closer to finalizing it for my talk I will post. There is a large literature on usability in the electronic writing-usability field.

Subject: [IPAC-List] Computer assisted testing

One item on our division to-do list this year is to "develop
recommendations regarding the use of computer assisted testing." Basically
we understand this to mean any technology as an alternative to using paper
and pencils when conducting multiple choice tests (e.g., anything from
off-the-shelf software loaded onto individual PCs or network running
in-house developed tests, to using online tests from vendors, proctored or
unproctored, etc.).

I have seen the slides from last years IPAC conference (CPS did a couple
on this topic) and those were helpful, I've also signed up for their
webinar next week. We're also familiar with National Testing Network.

I would appreciate hearing from agencies that have researched or adopted
computer assisted testing in one form or another. Thanks.
