In this essay I sketch the background that gave rise to adaptive testing and frame a discussion of CAT’s progress around Bert Green’s expectations of the advantages of this technology. Data from the first decade of operational CATs are used to compare what has happened to what was hoped for. I find that some of the goals for CAT that Green expressed are close to being accomplished, but that most of them remain in the future. Key words: adaptive testing, CAT’s progress, CAT’s advantages.
