Diagnostic Classification Models and Multidimensional Adaptive Testing: A Commentary on Rupp and Templin
Frey, Andreas; Carstensen, Claus H.
Measurement: Interdisciplinary Research and Perspectives, v7 n1 p58-61 Jan 2009
On a general level, the objective of diagnostic classifications models (DCMs) lies in a classification of individuals regarding multiple latent skills. In this article, the authors show that this objective can be achieved by multidimensional adaptive testing (MAT) as well. The authors discuss whether or not the restricted applicability of DCMs can be overcome by combining DCMs with MAT. The main concepts of MAT are first briefly described, and then the classification of individuals within a MAT-framework is discussed.
