The Journal of Computerized Adaptive Testing (JCAT) is a peer-reviewed electronic journal designed to advance the science and practice of computerized adaptive testing (CAT) by publishing empirical research reports, theoretical papers, and integrative critical reviews of topics directly related to CAT (e.g., item selection algorithms, security algorithms, multistage designs, examinee reactions to CAT, DIF in CAT, item bank development, the psychometrics of CAT) and on important ancillary topics (e.g., innovative item types, assessment engineering, psychometric models, issues surrounding the technology of adaptive testing, or validity studies).

JCAT is the official journal of the International Association for Computerized Adaptive Testing (IACAT).  For further information about IACAT, please visit our Web site at

The JCAT Web site-- -- is now open for manuscript submissions. This Web site also includes additional information about JCAT and instructions for submitting manuscripts.  To submit a manuscript, or review journal information or policies, select "Information -- For Authors" on the right-hand side of the screen. 

Manuscripts that are compatible with JCAT's objectives will be reviewed by two or more members of JCAT's Editorial Board or other CAT experts.  All manuscript correspondence will be conducted by email.

We look forward to the opportunity to consider your CAT research for publication in JCAT.  If you have any questions abut JCAT, please let me know.
