Clark, Cynthia L., Ed.
The principal objectives of this conference were to exchange information, discuss theoretical and empirical developments, and to coordinate research efforts. The papers and their authors are: "The Graded Response Model of Latent Trait Theory and Tailored Testing" by Fumiko Samejima; (Incomplete Orders and Computerized Testing" by Norman Cliff; "Adaptive Testing Research at Minnesota: Overview, Recent Results, and Future Directions" by David J. Weiss; "Adaptive Testing Research at Minnesota: Some Properties of a Bayesian Sequential Adaptive Mental Testing Strategy" by James R. McBride; "An Empirical Investigation of Weiss' Stradaptive Testing Model" by Brian K. Waters; "Using Computerized Tests to Add New Dimensions to the Measurement of Abilities Which Are Important for On-Job Performance: An Exploratory Study" by Charles H. Cory; "A Broad-Range Tailored Test of Verbal Ability" and "Some Likelihood Functions found in Tailored Testing" by Frederic M. Lord; "Bayesian Tailored Testing and the Influence of Item Bank Characteristics" by Carl J. Jensema; "Reflections on Adaptive Testing" by Duncan N. Hansen; "Computer-Assisted Testing: An Orderly Transition from Theory to Practice" by Richard H. McKillip and Vern W. Urry; "Five Years of Research: Is Computer-Assisted Testing Feasibility?" by Vern W. Urry; "Effectiveness of the Ancillary Estimation Procedure" by John F. Gugel, Frank L. Schmidt, and Vern W. Urry; and "Item Parameterization Procedures for the Future" by Frank L. Schmidt and Urry. (Author/DEP)
