Issued Date: 7 Aug 2014

Abstract


Tests with their many inexact measurements have been the concern of psychometricians for many years. The two issues of adequate precision and a common 'yardstick' for measuring persons of different abilities have been particularly  difficult to deal with. Computer-adaptive testing holds great promise in dealing with these and related issues in the field of testing. This paper describes several test variables of concern and explains the concept of computer-adaptive testing and its relationship to these variables.
