Abstract : Tailored testing tries to choose for administration items at a difficulty level matching the examinee's ability, which is inferred from his responses to items already administered. Robbins-Monro procedures for selecting items and for estimating the examinee's ability are evaluated. Various ideas of use for tailored testing emerge. (Author)
