Summary
"This primer presents an introduction to all of the key ingredients in understanding computerized adaptive testing - technology, test development, statistics, and mental test theory. Based on years of research, this book educates the novice and serves as a compendium of state-of-the-art information for professionals interested in computerized testing in the areas of education, psychology, and other related social sciences. A hypothetical test, taken as a prelude to employment, is used as a common example throughout to highlight the book's most important features and problems."--Jacket
