Computerized Adaptive Testing (CAT) involves the computerized administration of a test in which each item is dynamically selected from a pool of items until a pre-specified measurement precision Author: Howard Wainer.
However, these methods were developed for multidimensional computerized adaptive testing to obtain an efficient and precise ability estimate. Nevertheless, Segall’s () method, which selects the items at the current ability estimate, can be used for classification : Maaike M. van Groen, Theo J. Eggen, Bernard P.
