Abstract : Eight performance tests for repeated measurements based on published tests were generated on paper by computer programs. The computer programs can be used to sample equivalent forms of the tests for any number of occasions of repeated measurement. The programs also print any specified number of copies of the alternate forms to provide for multiple subjects. The logic of the item-sampling procedures and block diagrams of the item-generated method are discussed. The Fortran computer programs are given as Appendices. The tests are Addition, Number Comparison, Code Substitution, Grammatical Reasoning, Fitts' Histoform Recognition, Klien's Pattern Comparison, Neisser's Letter Search, and randomly-placed Number Search.
