Clinical and medical applications of computer adaptive testing

Otto B. Walter

The majority of theoretical and practical contributions concerning the application of computer adaptive tests (CATs) has been focused on the ability and achievement testing context. Many of the advantages of CATs seem to be well suited for the assessment of clinical constructs or health-related measures but the era of CATs in health-related or clinical measurement has just begun. The talk highlights recent developments and discusses practical issues such as computer adaptive testing on mobile devices.
