IRTPRO (Cai et al., 2011) is a completely new software program for item calibration and test scoring based on item response theory (IRT) methods. The development of IRTPRO began in 2005 as part of a Phase I Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) contract awarded to Scientific Software International (SSI) from the National Cancer Institute (contract# HHSN-2612007-00013C).
