Abstract : Computerized adaptive test (CAT) and paper-and-pencil (PP) ASVAB scores were compared and equated under equivalent-groups and counterbalanced, repeated-measures designs. The results were sensitive to the order of presentation of the two versions of the ASVAB. Different equatings emerged from the two designs.
