A Framework for the Development of Computerized Adaptive Tests
Thompson, Nathan A.; Weiss, David J.
Practical Assessment, Research & Evaluation, v16 n1 Jan 2011
A substantial amount of research has been conducted over the past 40 years on technical aspects of computerized adaptive testing (CAT), such as item selection algorithms, item exposure controls, and termination criteria. However, there is little literature providing practical guidance on the development of a CAT. This paper seeks to collate some of the available research methodologies into a general framework for the development of any CAT assessment. (Contains 1 figure and 1 table.)
