Adaptive or tailored assessment
Many online assessments are called ‘adaptive’ or ‘tailored’. This means that as the student progresses through the test, the level of questions they are given will depend on their previous responses. For example, the NAPLAN consists of blocks of questions. How well a student performs in the first block of questions will inform where that student will be directed to in subsequent blocks. This ensures that each student is tested at their level, not offered questions that are too easy or too difficult.
