What is CAT/Computer Adaptive Test?

Mahesh Ramani | 15 Feb 2014 | Updated on 17 Aug 2015
In the previous video Kevin gave us a brief introduction about the GMAT, here he continues to speak and sheds some light on the CAT or Computer Adaptive Test.
The CAT is a new intelligent system of testing wherein questions are generated by the computer. Each person is taking a test with a different set of questions from the other. The test starts with a medium-difficulty question. If the user answers it correctly, the next question generated by the computer algorithm is a bit tougher than the first question. Alternatively, if the user is not able to answer the first correctly the computer next generates a slightly easier question. Essentially, each subsequent question that is generated is based if the user answers the previous question correctly or not.
In the next video, Kevin talks about how students can prepare for the GMAT in a span of 6 months.
