What is a computer adaptive system?
Based on student responses, the computer adjusts the difficulty of the questions throughout the assessment.
Example: A student who answers a question correctly will receive a more challenging test item, while an incorrect answer generates an easier question. By adapting to each student’s abilities, the assessments quickly identify which skills students have/have not mastered.
