Abstract: For the measurement of multiple traits, this paper proposes assembling tests based on the targets for the (asymptotic) variance functions of the estimators of each of the traits. A linear programming model is presented that can be used to computerize the assembly process. Several cases of test assembly dealing with multidimensional traits are distinguished, and versions of the model applicable to each of these cases are discussed. An empirical example of a test assembly problem from a two-dimensional mathematics item pool is provided. Index terms: asymptotic variance functions, linear programming, multidimensional IRT, test assembly, test design.
