Computerized Adaptive Testing: An Introduction.
Sereci, Stephen G.
Computers are revolutionizing almost every aspect of society and testing is no exception. Delivering tests on a computer often improves exam security, testing efficiency, and scoring, and it often allows for measurement of knowledge, skills, and abilities that cannot be measured using traditional assessment formats. One of the most widely cited benefits of computer-based testing is the ability to use the computer to tailor the test to specific characteristics of an examinee. This chapter provides a brief overview of this type of adaptive testing, focusing on the issues most relevant to teachers, counselors, and administrators. (Contains 19 references.) (GCP)
