Computerized Adaptive Mastery Tests as Expert Systems

Journal of Educational Computing Research Volume 8, Number 2, ISSN 0735-6331


Discussion of expert systems and computerized adaptive tests describes two versions of EXSPRT, a new approach that combines uncertain inference in expert systems with sequential probability ratio test (SPRT) stopping rules. Results of two studies comparing EXSPRT to adaptive mastery testing based on item response theory and SPRT approaches are reported. (41 references) (LRW)
