Three-Category Adaptive Classification Testing
Educational and psychological testing can have many practical purposes. From the perspective of test users, a distinction among selection, placement, certification, licensuring, monitoring of progress in proficiency, and diagnostic testing can be made. From the measurement point of view, it generally suffices to distinguish between estimation and classification.
