Journal of Applied Testing Technology, v16 n1 p1-18 2015
The demand for test items far outstrips the current supply. This increased demand can be attributed, in part, to the transition to computerized testing, but, it is also linked to dramatic changes in how 21st century educational assessments are designed and administered. One way to address this growing demand is with automatic item generation. Automatic item generation involves the process of using models to generate items with the aid of computer technology. The purpose of this study is to describe and illustrate a methodology that permits the generation of huge number of diverse and heterogeneous test items that are closely aligned to the Common Core State Standards in Mathematics.
