Abstract:
A goal programming approach for selecting items from an item bank to construct a test, based on item response theory (IRT), was proposed. This approach can simultaneously handle multiple and conflicting goals, which is more realistic and practical than the linear programming approach that deals with only a single goal. An example was presented to show the procedures of applying the goal programming approach for constructing a test based on IRT one-parameter logistic model. The results provide the test constructor flexible ways to select items to meet different needs.
