Items and/or tasks are assembled into one or more test forms against which test takers will be scored. The forms meet the blueprint specifications and are balanced for content and statistical characteristics such as difficulty, discrimination, test time, reliability, and standard error. If an appropriate benchmark (i.e., pre-defined) cut score exists, the cut score on the new forms is equated to the benchmark.

Alpine staff has extensive experience using Classical Test Theory, Item Response Theory, and Rasch to assemble operational test forms and equate cut scores.
