This book offers a comprehensive introduction to the latest developments in the theory and practice of CAT. It can be used both as a basic reference and a valuable resource on test theory. It covers such topics as item selection and ability estimation, item pool development and maintenance, item calibration and model fit, and testlet-based adaptive testing, as well as the operational aspects of existing large-scale CAT programs.

Computerized Adaptive Testing (CAT) is now entering a new phase of its existence, having developed into a viable alternative form of measurement backed by rigorous technology involving far more than hardware and software. Computer technology, test development, statistics, and mental test theory all play a role in CAT and are thus united in this primer. Based on 30 years of solid research, this book will educate the novice and serve as a compendium of state-of-the-art data for professionals. A hypothetical test taken as a prelude to employment, the "Gedanken Computerized Adaptive Test," is used throughout as a common example that highlights important features and problems presented by different types of computerized testing.

The arrival of the computer in educational and psychological testing has led to the current popularity of adaptive testing---a testing format in which the computer uses statistical information about the test items to automatically adapt their selection to a real-time update of the test taker’s ability estimate. This book covers such key features of adaptive testing as item selection and ability estimation, adaptive testing with multidimensional abilities, sequencing adaptive test batteries, multistage adaptive testing, item-pool design and maintenance, estimation of item and item-family parameters, item and person fit, as well as adaptive mastery and classification testing. It also shows how these features are used in the daily operations of several large-scale adaptive testing programs.

Despite the fact that test development is a growth industry that cuts across all levels of education and all the professions, there has never been a comprehensive, research-oriented Handbook to which everyone (developers and consumers) can turn for guidance. That is the mission of this book. The Handbook of Test Development brings together well-known scholars and test-development practitioners to present chapters on all aspects of test development. Each chapter contributor is not only a recognized expert with an academic and research background in their designated topic, each one has also had hands-on experience in various aspects of test development. This thirty two-chapter volume is organized into six sections: foundations, content, item development, test design, test production and administration, and post-test activities. The Handbook provides extensive treatment of such important but unrecognized topics as contracting for testing services, item banking, designing tests for small testing program, and writing technical reports. The Handbook is based on the Standards for Educational and Psychological Testing, which serve as the foundation for sound test development practice. These chapters also suggest best test development practices and highlight methods to improve test validity evidence. This book is appropriate for graduate courses and seminars that deal with test development and usage, professional testing services and credentialing agencies, state and local boards of education, and academic libraries serving these groups.

From the Preface This book represents the first collection of state-of-the-art research on latent trait test theory and computerized adaptive testing. It is designed to bring to the reader an appreciation of the current state of research in these fields as well as specific information on important aspects of latent trait test theory and computerized adaptive testing, their applications, and the underlying models. It should help readers appreciate the range of applicability of latent trait test theory and computerized adaptive testing to specific psychometric problems and give them an appreciation for the utility of both of these fields for the solution of important psychometric problems. This book should be useful to psychometricians who are new to latent trait test theory and computerized adaptive testing, as well as those with more advanced knowledge.

Item response theory (IRT) is a latent variable modeling approach used to minimize bias and optimize the measurement power of educational and psychological tests and other psychometric applications. Designed for researchers, psychometric professionals, and advanced students, this book clearly presents both the "how-to" and the "why" of IRT. It describes simple and more complex IRT models and shows how they are applied with the help of widely available software packages. Chapters follow a consistent format and build sequentially, taking the reader from model development through the fit analysis and interpretation phases that one would perform in practice. The use of common empirical data sets across the chapters facilitates understanding of the various models and how they relate to one another.
