Is there a better alternative for "computerize"? Although the word is used in many writings, it doesn't sound good to me. I don't like it. For the context: consider a psychological test (e.g., an IQ test) that was used to be administered manually, is going to be computerized so that it could run on personal computers.
Although there is not a perfect solution to a problem of specificity ("computerize" is probably the modern word you want but are justifiably hesitant to use), I suggest the use of the word "program". While it may itself be mildly ambiguous, it should satisfy in context.
I hate that we waste all this paper for this assessment, especially when we have to enter the data into a computer later. Can't we program the test?
A good analogy for the OP's psychometric test may be the GRE.
The Graduate Record Examination (GRE) has both tests that use a number 2 pencil and that use a keyboard and mouse.
They call the former a Paper-delivered test. They call the latter a computer-delivered test. The ETS site does not have any information on when the computer-delivered test was first administered to students, nor what they called the process of creating / programming / computerizing said test.
This sounds tinny to my ear, but let's soldier on.
I suppose one could say: create a computer-delivered test.
A programmer might program or implement a computer-based test.
Since a test like this cannot be considered to be exactly the same thing if administered in different forms, I would consider this to be a new version of the test, which is appropriate as it is a piece of software. Along with this, you can point out the important difference in the new version, which is that it is for a personal computer, commonly abbreviated as "PC".
This has traditionally been a paper test, but will soon be released in a PC version.
"Consider a psychological test (e.g., an IQ test) that was used to be administered manually, is going to be reformatted to run on personal computers and other devices."
Another suggestion: "is going to be adapted for deployment on personal computers and other devices."
