simple item content constraint systems. With tests like the GRE General Test, content constraints were not mutually exclusive and a selected item could satisfy a number of different constraints.

A procedure for dealing with such constraints was needed. Moreover, if such a system were to parallel item selection manually done by test development.

This study compared four item-selection procedures developed for use with severely constrained computerized adaptive tests (CATs).

Severely constrained CATs refer to those adaptive tests that seek to meet a complex set of constraints that are often not conclusive to each other (i.e., an item may contribute to the satisfaction of several constraints at the same time).

Applied Psychological Measurement, 27, A COMPARISON OF FOUR ITEM-SELECTION METHODS FOR SEVERELY CONSTRAINED CATS ABSTRACT This study compares the four existing procedures handling the item selection in severely constrained computerized adaptive tests (CAT).

These procedures include weighted deviation model (WDM), weighted penalty model (WPM), maximum priority index (MPI), and shadow. of all content constraints. A shadow test is a complete test form assembled in real time prior to each item selection that 1) satisfies all constraints specifically imposed on the adaptive test, 2) has maximum information at the current ability estimate, and 3) contains all items previously administered to the test taker (van der Linden, ).

Adaptive testing designs have become go-to methods for large-scale test administration due to their ability to provide more accurate scores with fewer items.

In recent years, new designs have been introduced, such as on-the-fly multistage testing (OMST), that combine the advantages of the well-established computerized adaptive testing (CAT) and multistage testing (MST) designs. less. optimum. items. This.

Miller. Another item selection method is Kullback Leibler information (Chang & Ying, ). In this method of item selection, the K ullback Leibler (KL) information, which is the distance between two ability points on the latent trait score, is first estimated across the number of k.

There conditions for comparison: (1) but the θ- and α-based condition has an additional advantage of in that it uses the shadow test method, which allows the administrator to incorporate additional constraints in the item selection process, such as content balancing. The chapter presents alternative methods to asses the two requirements.

The patch test is an essential test to both test accuracy of the computer program used to solve problems as well as to validate formulations that violate the standard rules described in previous chapters. One such case of a non-conforming element is presented in the chapter.
