Guidelines for creating effective Custom and Adaptive tests »
e-asTTle testing is about getting useful information, not about correctly answering all questions. To get the most useful information from e-asTTle, set a test where you expect students to answer about 50% of the test correctly – 100% correct is not a desirable outcome.

When you create an Adaptive test, seven mini-tests are created behind the scenes. The aim is to present each student with questions most appropriate to their ability.
