It is currently not entirely clear to what degree the research on multidimensional computerized adaptive testing (CAT) conducted in the field of educational testing can be generalized to fields such as health assessment, where CAT design factors differ considerably from those typically used in educational testing. In this study, the impact of a number of important design factors on CAT performance is systematically evaluated, using realistic example item banks for two main scenarios: health asse...

AbstractThe fifth edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM–5) presents an alternative model for personality disorders in which severity of personality pathology is evaluated by the Level of Personality Functioning Scale (LPFS). The Structured Interview for the DSM–5 Alternative Model for Personality Disorders, Module I (SCID–5–AMPD I) is a new tool for LPFS assessment, but its interrater reliability (IRR) has not yet been tested. Here we examined the reliability ...

Objectives The assessment of health care professionals’ attitudes and beliefs towards musculoskeletal pain is essential because they are key determinants of their clinical practice behaviour. The Pain Attitudes and Beliefs Scale (PABS) biomedical scale evaluates the degree of health professionals’ biomedical orientation towards musculoskeletal pain and was never assessed using item response theory (IRT). This study aimed at assessing the psychometric performance of the 10-item biomedical scale o...

Research has shown the benefits of taking into account the correlation among dimensions when estimating latent trait scores in computerized adaptive tests (CATs). Multidimensional CATs (MCATs) could further improve measurement precision/decrease test length as compared to using separate unidimensional CATs for each domain, especially if domains are highly correlated. In this study, we systematically evaluate the impact of a number of important design factors on CAT performance, using realistic e...

Aim: Assessment is essential for adapting support to the needs, abilities and preferences of people with Profound Intellectual and Multiple Disabilities (PIMD). However, because of the complex interrelatedness of disabilities of people with PIMD, assessment in people with PIMD is complex and requires a multidimensional framework. The aim of this study is to compose an international overview of what assessment procedures are used in support of people with PIMD, to what goals and whether assessmen...
