This research study was designed to compare student achievement scores from three different testing methods: paper-administered testing, computer-administered testing, and computerized adaptive testing. The three testing formats were developed from the California Assessment Program (CAP) item banks for grades three and six. The paper-administered and the computer-administered tests were identical in item content, format, and sequence. The computerized adaptive test was a tailored or adaptive sequence of the items in the computer-administered test.
