Adaptive Testing: More Bang for the Buck.
Thorndike, Robert L.
In educational testing, one is concerned to get as much information as possible about a given examinee from each minute of testing time. Maximum information is obtained when the difficulty of each test exercise matches the estimated ability level of the examinee. The goal of adaptive testing is to accomplish this. Adaptive patterns are reviewed for three types of testing situations: (1) group testing, (2) interactive testing with a computer, and (3) individual testing by a trained examiner. Special attention is given to the stradaptive test format. (Author)
