The aim of the present study is to describe the characteristics of a procedure for administering computerized and adaptive tests (Computer Adaptive Testing or CAT). Items to be asked to the individuals are interactively chosen and are selected from a "bank" in which they were previously calibrated and recorded on the basis of their difficulty level. The selection of items is performed by increasingly more accurate estimates of the examinees' ability. The building of an item-bank on Psychometrics and the implementation of this procedure allow a first validation through Monte Carlo simulations.
