Abstract: 
A Computerized Adaptive Testing (CAT) project in reading
comprehension was established to develop multiple choice tests across four
grade levels, Primary 3 and 5, and Secondary I and 3. CAT is interactive and
allows participants to select their own entry points to the test and gives
feedback on their performance. Building a CAT system required the
development of an item bank, selection of item and items order to be presented
in a test, and evaluating the test for difficulty. The creation of the item bank
involved the specifying reading comprehension skills, writing items, field
testing, item analysis and calibration. The software, MICROCAT, was used to
develop an item bank, to select items and item order to be presented in a test,
and to evaluate the test for difficulty. The project is currently at the stage of
field testing.
