Abstract:

Adaptive testing is viewed as a theoretical framework with associated computerized techniques combining to offer solutions to the growing measurement challenges of individualized technical training. It is characterized by three subprocesses which are described. In the context of Air Force technical training, five benefits of adaptive testing are seen saving instructional and test time improving reliability and validity of test decisions optimizing entry and movement within a required learning hierarchy assisting training management through refined data specification, collection, and dissemination and minimizing remediation time. Related literature is reviewed and synthesized into the areas of subprocesses listed above. Three proposed studies, based on prior work done in two Air Force technical courses, are described in a design for validation of adaptive testing. Modified author abstract
