We proposed the idea of establishing computer adaptive learning platform for Calculus. Students can do self-testing using the system any time after learning. Computerized adaptive testing (CAT) is used in the assessment of tests in this learning platform. The system gives students adaptive testing items to collect and to examine students’ learning situation. After analyzing students’ learning portfolio, the system sends the information to the teacher so that he realize the learning situations for every student at any time. This learning platform will be a great help when students’ learning Calculus.
