Trends in Psychological Measurement: Item-Response Theory (IRT)

An outcome of increasing computer technology is that item-response theory (IRT) is becoming increasingly easy to apply. New software and fast and inexpensive computers are readily accessible. This has made possible the development of item banks and computer administration that can be carefully matched to an examinee's ability level. IRT also allows test items to be compared across languages and cultures.
