To bridge the gap between computerized testing
and information-processing-based measurement, a
battery of computerized
ability and preference measures was developed.
The information-processing ...
Approaches to adaptive (tailored) testing based on
item response theory are described and research results
summarized. Through appropriate combinations
of item pool design and use of different test
termination criteria, ...
A formula is derived for the asymptotic standard
error of a true-score equating by item response
theory. The equating method is applicable when the
two tests to be equated are administered to different
groups along ...
In recent years several authors have viewed latent
trait models for binary data as special models for
contingency tables. This connection to contingency
table analysis is used as the basis for a survey of
various latent ...
Expected a posteriori (EAP) estimation of ability,
based on numerical evaluation of the mean and
variance of the posterior distribution, is shown to
have unusually good properties for computerized
adaptive testing. The ...
