This research is an attempt to use animation to display complex math problems on computer-based testing. To translate math problem into mathematical expression is one of the key factors in math. However, examinees who cannot understand the literal meaning of the sentence will not be able to express it mathematically, even if they have the necessary mathematical skills. To solve this problem, this research explores the possibility of using animation for delivering math problems to examinees. This paper describes an experiment carried out with 19 college students using 4 different complex math problems, delivered either in all-text mode or in all-animation mode, to examine whether the modes affects in understanding the math problems. The result indicates that although the students felt it easier to understand the math problem from the all- animation mode, there were no significant differences in the test scores, between 2 modes.
