The number and range of computer-based assessment procedures for children and young people have increased greatly over the past few years. Over this time as well, other technological advances have occurred with a potential for application in services for young people. This paper provides an overview of the range of applications of relevance to practitioners, with a focus on assessment. Some of the benefits and disadvantages of computerised procedures for test administration and report writing are considered. The paper concludes with an examination of the issue of access to tests and some of the implications of the introduction of other new technologies.
