Abstract : The computerized adaptive version of the Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery will use a Bayesian procedure for computing test scores. Properties of three common Bayesian procedures are examined in this research memorandum. The results show that the procedures are almost equally reliable and that reliability drops if item parameters change from paper-pencil to computerized administration.
