    In the case of the evaluation framework, the Wisconsin Breast Cancer dataset was the most frequently used by researchers to perform their experiments, while the most noticeable validation method was k-fold cross-validation.

A final limitation of our study is the BDI itself. Our results argue that a computerized adaptive test has the same sensitivity and specificity as its full-length version, and the same validity as a measure of symptom severity. Conversion to CAT cannot, however, produce a test with higher validity than the base instrument.

Although the BDI is Cited by: computerized adaptive test: An adaptive test administered by computer.

One type of adaptive test that can be particularly useful in personality assessment is the stratified adaptive test or stradaptive test (Weiss, ). In this type of testing the item pool is stratified into subsets-strata- of different difficulty by: Computerized questionnaire administration, where the items are presented on the computer.

The basic premise behind the pretest–posttest design involves obtaining a pretest measure of the outcome of interest prior to administering some treatment, followed by a posttest on the same measure after treatment occurs.

Although the statistical tools most often used by researchers in the field of psychology over the last 25 years are based on frequentist statistics, it is often claimed that the alternative Bayesian approach to statistics is gaining in popularity.
