Development of a Computerized Adaptive Testing Program for Alaska Natives Project

Leader: Carlotta Ching Ting Fok, Ph.D.

Two ­year project funded through June 30, 2014

Summary: This project focuses on the development of a computerized adaptive testing (CAT) program as an alternative to conventional testing approaches for Alaska Natives (ANs). Conventional approaches assessing risk and protective factors may be culturally inappropriate with AN populations because of the large number of items required. CAT provides an alternative that can dramatically reduce the burden of assessments in research and in clinical applications.
