Abstract:
The computerized adaptive test (CAT) developed aims to obtain reliable and accurate information on the level of mathematical skills of incoming students, in order to guide them in the Mathematics courses to which it suits them to register according to their performance reached. Therefore, the objective of the test, in addition to classifying them at different levels of performance, is to provide guidance on the course that was recommended to take. Alternative curricular trajectories were designed according to the performance achieved in the test. To develop this CAT, a bank of items with parameters estimated by Item Response Theory; and a procedure to progressively select the best previously developed items and a method for estimating trait levels, were used. CAT provided a personalized report of each student, which allowed to improve the academic orientation on the part of the tutors' teachers. In addition, it was observed that the students used the test to make decisions about their trajectories autonomously
