Assessment can be delivered through paper and pencil (Paper Based Testing-PBT), through computers (Computer Based Testing-CBT) or mobile devices (Mobile Based Testing-MBT). Conclusions from previous research are not consistent regarding the performance of test taker related to the test delivery mode. Different test delivery modes may lead to differentiated student performance. The goal of this study is to bring new evidence regarding the impact of PBT, CBT and MBT on students' performance. The findings of the study indicate that there are statistically significant differences in test scores of first year undergraduate students of Economics in the subject of ICT among MBT, CBT and PBT in favor of MBT.
