Abstract : The report describes the development and evaluation of a computer assisted test model for assessing an examinee's proficiency in a set of skills for which a hierarchy of prerequisite relationships is known to exist. The test model calls for the random construction of items using item generation rules stored in the computer, an item sampling procedure that permits the test constructor to control for classification errors, and a branching strategy that tailors testing to individual students in accordance with their competencies.
