From the PublisherFrom the reviews of the first edition:
JOURNAL OF THE AMERICAN STATISTICAL ASSOCIATION
"This very useful book may represent the first effort to pull together the extremely broad areas of research involved in computerized testing and present them in one readable, organized, and applied package…reads very smoothly and presents even difficult material in such a way that someone without a firm grounding in psychometrics can follow the logic of computerized test development. The writing is extremely concise, the material is presented in a logical order, and ample references are provided to support the information given in each chapter…a wonderful resource for any test administrator or test designer who is familiar with the procedure for producing paper-and-pencil tests but who is unsure about how to smooth the transition to a computerized test. The authors do a great service by balancing the instructional information with many warnings about the unexpected psychometric and practical pitfalls of a computerized testing program…It is refreshing to see this material presented in a way that conveys neither overenthusiastic optimism nor dire pessimism…helpful for those who are looking for an introductory guidebook that exposes some of the practical advantages of computerized tests."
"This book is devoted to computer-based testing with emphasis on its practical side. It includes both technical and nontechnical considerations. Material is oriented towards practitioners and graduate students. … The book can be useful for practitioners and students involved into preparation and evaluation of computer-based testing." (Marie Huškova, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1014, 2003)
