Responses to pencil-and-paper versus computerized versions of 10 well established lifestyle-related questionnaires were compared for 83 students enrolled in a Personal Health Course at a southern university. Responses to the two formats were similar with Pearson product-moment correlation coefficients ranging from .35 to .89, lower than desirable but statistically significant for all but one of the questionnaires. Students preferred the computerized version over the pencil-and-paper format.
