In this book, we review many examples of multimedia item types for testing. We also outline how games can be used to test physics concepts — discuss designing chemistry item types with interactive graphics; study how culture-specific linguistics can help inner-city kids and new immigrants...

The common way to calculate confidence intervals for item response theory models is to assume that the standardized maximum likelihood estimator for the person parameter θ is normally distributed. However, this approximation is often inadequate for short and medium test lengths. As a result,...

Adaptive testing under a multidimensional logistic response model is addressed. An algorithm is proposed that minimizes the (asymptotic) variance of the maximum-likelihood estimator of a linear combination of abilities of interest. The criterion results in a closed-form expression that is easy...

In this paper it is demonstrated how statistical inference from multistage test designs can be made based on the conditional likelihood. Special attention is given to parameter estimation, as well as the evaluation of model fit. Two reasons are provided why the fit of simple measurement models...
