Tailored testing by Cliff’s (1975) method of implied
orders was simulated through the use of responses
gathered during conventional administration
of the Stanford-Binet intelligence test. Tailoring
eliminated approximately half the responses
with only modest decreases in score reliability. Responses
in tailored tests were shown by the Spearman-
Brown prophecy formula to be equivalent to
from 1.09 to 1.48 conventional items. Ninety-five
percent of all responses implied by the tailoring
procedures were identical to responses actually obtained
during live testing.
