Summary
This book traces the development of computerized adaptive testing (CAT) from its origins in the 1960s to its integration with the Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB) in the 1990s. A paper-and-pencil version of the battery (P&P-ASVAB) has been used by the Defense Department since the 1970s to measure the abilities of applicants for military service. The test scores are used both for initial qualification and for classification into entry-level training opportunities. /// This volume provides the developmental history of the CAT-ASVAB through its various stages in the Joint-Service arena. Although the majority of the book concerns the myriad technical issues that were identified and resolved, information is provided on various political and funding support challenges that were successfully overcome in developing, testing, and implementing the battery into one of the nation's largest testing programs. The book provides useful information to professionals in the testing community and everyone interested in personnel assessment and evaluation.
