AB - (From the chapter) The authors develop approximate methods that replace the scoring tables with weighted linear combinations of the component scores. Topics discussed include: a linear approximation for the extension to combinations of scores; the generalization of two or more scores; potential applications of linear approximations to item response theory in computerized adaptive tests; and evaluation of the pattern-of-summed-scores, and Gaussian approximation, estimates of proficiency.
