Online, Computer-Based, and Computer Adaptive Testing
Do you need cost-effective assessment options? CASAS eTests brings together two types of computer-delivered assessment:
- Online and Computer-based tests (CBTs) are electronic versions of standard CASAS test forms.
- Computer-adaptive tests (CATs) draw from an extensive CASAS item bank to customize assessments to the unique ability of each examinee.
Programs (including WIOA Title I and Title II-funded programs) confidently use CASAS eTests for appraisal and progress testing because the standard CASAS test forms available (CBT) are validated by the U.S. Departments of Education and Labor. Programs not required to administer parallel fixed-form tests often prefer CAT assessments because they provide maximum accuracy and speed.
