dc.description.abstract This study examined the relationship between characteristics of adaptive testing and test takers' subsequent reactions to the test. Participants took a computer adaptive test in which two features, the difficulty of the initial item and the difficulty of subsequent items, were manipulated. These two features of adaptive testing determined the number of items answered correctly by examinees and their subsequent reactions to the test. The data show that the relationship between test characteristics and reactions was fully mediated by perceived performance on the test. In addition, the impact of feedback on reactions to adaptive testing was also evaluated. In general, feedback that was consistent with perceptions of performance had a positive impact on reactions to the test. Implications for adaptive test design concerning maximizing test takers' reactions are discussed.
