Beyond Multiple-Choice: UMass Enriches Adult Proficiency Tests with Engaging Interaction Types Using TAO

Beyond Multiple-Choice:UMass Enriches Adult Proficiency Tests with Engaging Interaction Types Using TAOFounded in 1863, the University of Massachusetts Amherst (UMass) is one of the major public research universities in America. The Center for Educational Assessments at UMass has been developing and administering the Massachusetts Adult Proficiency Test (MAPT) in reading and math for Adult Basic Education (ABE) students for 10 years. These are computerized multi-stage adaptive tests. However, they contain only multiple-choice questions, and therefore are limited on the types of knowledge and skills they can effectively measure.
