Abstract:A constrained computerized adaptive testing (CAT) algorithm is presented that can be used to equate CAT number-correct (NC) scores to a reference test. As a result, the CAT NC scores also are equated across administrations. The constraints are derived from van der Linden & Luecht’s (1998) set of conditions on item response functions that guarantees identical observed NC score distributions on two test forms. An item bank from the Law School Admission Test was used to compare the results of the algorithm with those for equipercentile observed-score equating, as well as the prediction of NC scores on a reference test using its test response function. The effects of the constraints on the statistical properties of the estimator in CAT were examined.
