title = "Some new item selection criteria for adaptive testing",

abstract = "In this study some alternative item selection criteria for adaptive testing are proposed. These criteria take into account the uncertainty of the ability estimates. A general weighted information criterion is suggested of which the usual maximum information criterion and the suggested alternative criteria are special cases. A simulation study was conducted to compare the different criteria. The results showed that the likelihood weighted mean information criterion was a good alternative to the maximum information criterion. Another good alternative was a maximum information criterion with the maximum likelihood estimate of ability replaced by the Bayesian EAP estimate. An appendix discusses the interval information criterion for the two- and three-parameter logistic item response theory model.",
