Studied the applicability of a computerized adaptive testing procedure to an existing personality questionnaire within the framework of item response theory. The procedure was applied to the scores of 1,143 male and female university students (mean age 21.8 yrs) in the Netherlands on the Neuroticism scale of the Amsterdam Biographical Questionnaire (G. J. Wilde, 1963). The graded response model (F. Samejima, 1969) was used. The quality of the adaptive test scores was measured based on their correlation with test scores for the entire item bank and on their correlation with scores on other scales from the personality test. The results indicate that computerized adaptive testing can be applied to personality scales. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2005 APA )
