The goal of this guide and manual is to provide a practical and brief overview of the theory on computerized adaptive testing (CAT) and multistage testing (MST) and to illustrate the methodologies and applications using R open source language and several data examples. Implementation relies on the R packages catR and mstR that have been already Author: David Magis, Duanli Yan, Alina A von Davier. This book contains most of what you need to understand how computerized adaptive tests (CAT) do what they do. It is a good complement to the seminal book on Item Response Theory (IRT) by Wainer's colleague, Frederic Lord (Applications of Item Response Theory to Practical Testing Problems).4/5(2).

Computerized Adaptive Testing Pages pages This celebrated primer presents an introduction to all of the key ingredients in understanding computerized adaptive testing technology, test development, statistics, and mental test by: Computerized adaptive testing can be said to be of great importance in the instructional process, especially in student-centered learning. on computer adaptive testing (CAT) and reading comprehension. It considers the issues from a number of angles - reading research, design, development and measurement. The three main sections of the book are usefully reviewed by three discussants, Charles Alderson, Carol Chapelle and Bruno Zumbo. Computerized Multistage Testing: Theory and Applications covers the methodologies, underlying technology, and implementation aspects of this type of test design. The book discusses current scientific perspectives and practical considerations for each step involved in setting up an MST program.5/5(1).
The book can be used both as a basic reference on the state of the art in CAT and a valuable resource in graduate courses on test theory. The theoretical chapters in this book cover such topics as item selection and ability estimation, item pool development and maintenance, item calibration and model fit, and testlet-based adaptive testing. New Horizons in Testing: Latent Trait Test Theory and Computerized Adaptive Testing provides an in-depth analysis of psychological measurement, espoused by the computer-latent trait test theory (item response theory) and computerized adaptive testing. The book is organized into five parts. A hypothetical test taken as a prelude to employment is used as a common example throughout to highlight this book's most important features and problems. Changes in the new edition include: *a completely rewritten chapter 2 on the system considerations needed for modern computerized adaptive testing;. Computerized adaptive testing: a primer Howard Wainer, Neil J. Dorans This celebrated primer presents an introduction to all of the key ingredients in understanding computerized adaptive testing technology, test development, statistics, and mental test theory.
