The study adopted a survey research design method using the descriptive approach. Purposive sampling technique was used in selecting the sample size used for the study. The study covered all 100 level part-time students offering „Use of Library‟. The data for the study was collected with a structured questionnaire designed by the researchers. 323 copies of the questionnaire were administered out of which 240 (74.7%) were retrieved and certified to be valid for the analysis. Frequency counts and percentages were carried out using SPSS. The findings from the study revealed among others that, CBT is being preferred to the conventional paper-based method of assessment by part-time students. That a significant percentage of the respondents performed fairly good in the „Use of Library‟ CBT examination. Respondents relatively were familiar with computer systems. While constant electricity supply was identified as critical to enhancing CBT Examinations, students‟ poor ICT skill, lack of ICT literate invigilators and inadequate examination time were identified as the major problems facing the conduct of „Use of Library‟ CBT Examination. The paper recommends the need for part-time directorate to create more awareness on CBT in order to enhance acceptance of CBT examination among part-time students.
