Utilizing response time for item selection in on-the-fly multistage adaptive testing for PISA assessment

Multistage adaptive testing (MST) has become one of the most popular test designs for large-scale testing. However, it has some weaknesses such as a larger estimation bias compared to computerized adaptive testing (CAT). On-the-fly multistage adaptive testing (OMST) can balance the advantages and limitations of CAT and MST. Several CAT item selection methods that incorporate response time have been proposed. However, incorporating response time into OMST to select items was rarely studied. The study plans to explore the possibility of applying OMST with response time to the Programme for International Student Assessment to solve the issue of large estimation bias and improve test efficiency.
