One of the research areas in the TBA Centre concerns Measurement Efficiency and Automatic Answer Coding
This area addresses the improvement of measurement efficiency in computer- as well as paper-based tests. This can be achieved, for example, by adapting item selection automatically depending on the test taker's previous answers, so-called adaptive testing. Moreover, this research area includes the objective to develop and evaluate procedures for the automatic coding of free text responses.
