Optimal Test Construction. Research Report.
Veldkamp, Bernard P.
This paper discusses optimal test construction, which deals with the selection of items from a pool to construct a test that performs optimally with respect to the objective of the test and simultaneously meets all test specifications. Optimal test construction problems can be formulated as mathematical decision models. Algorithms and heuristics have been developed to solve the models that can be used to construct tests. (Contains 2 tables, 2 figures, and 27 references.) (Author/SLD)
