      Colin Finnerty is Head of Assessment Production at Oxford University Press. He has worked in language assessment at OUP for eight years, heading a team which created the Oxford Young Learner’s Placement Test and the Oxford Test of English. His interests include learner corpora, learning analytics, and adaptive technology. •Measurement. Measurement can be defined as a set of rules for assigning numbers to represent objects, traits, attributes, or behaviors. •Validity refers to the appropriateness or accuracy Performance on tests can be generalized to non-test behaviors. 8) Assessment can provide information that helps. This book employs an issue-oriented approach to the analysis and interpretation of complex measurement concerns, most of which are being debated in public forums today. As an example, this book examines issues such as the score gap, high-stakes tests and the dropout crisis, and the problem of grade retention versus social promotion. The problem of cultural bias in mental tests has drawn controversy since the early s, when Binet's first intelligence scale was published and Stern introduced procedures for testing intelligence (Binet & Simon, / ; Stern, ).The conflict is in no way limited to cognitive ability tests, but the so-called IQ controversy has attracted most of the public attention.

As you can see, the TOEFL test and GRE test changed to computerized tests, even computerized adaptive tests, and a lot of related IRT techniques were applied.

Item response theory (IRT) has a number of potential advantages over classical test theory in assessing self-reported health outcomes.

Most computerized adaptive tests (CATs) have been studied using the framework of unidimensional item response theory. However, many psychological variables are multidimensional and might benefit from using a multidimensional approach to CATs.

This study investigated the accuracy, fidelity, and efficiency of a fully multidimensional CAT algorithm. The book can be used both as a basic reference on the state of the art in CAT and a valuable resource in graduate courses on test theory.

The theoretical chapters in this book cover such topics as item selection and ability estimation, item pool development and maintenance, item calibration and model fit, and testlet-based adaptive testing.

Item response theory (IRT) is a latent variable modeling approach used to minimize bias and optimize the measurement power of educational and psychological tests and other psychometric applications.
