ASC recently held a 5-day workshop on item response theory (IRT) and computerized adaptive testing (CAT) for the Botswana Examinations Council (http://www.bec.co.bw/).  In addition, there were participants from Namibia and Nigeria, expanding the scope of the discussion.  Much of the workshop focused on the use of ASC’s leading-edge software for IRT analysis, Xcalibre 4.  Thank you to BEC for organizing the workshop!
