Measurement theory plays a foundational role in educational and psychological assessment. Classical item response theory (IRT) models are widely used in the design and analysis of educational tests and psychological surveys that involve multiple choice questions. In this talk, we will first discuss some recent progress related to variations and extensions of the classical IRT model-based methods. We will then turn to the modeling and analysis of process data arising from complex problem-solving items, which are increasingly being adopted in large scale educational assessment. New developments, including statistical models and machine learning algorithms, will be presented. Examples from educational testing and psychological assessment will be used for illustration.
