I was doing studies in reinforcement learning and trying to apply it in Computerised Adaptive Testing (CAT). While learning IRT, I felt it is similar to behaviour of RL setting - receiving feedback and adjusting parameters(or learning) in each cycle.

Is Item Response Theory (IRT) a form of reinforcement learning? Can I know the differences if any.

  • $\begingroup$ Can you elaborate on this any? We prefer threads that don't amount to just "Yes", or "No". Is there something confusing you about these? How did this question arise? Etc. $\endgroup$ – gung Feb 18 '18 at 12:37

  • $\begingroup$ More active learning I suggest. But if you expand on your analogy it will be easier to say how CAT and RL might be usefully related. $\endgroup$ – conjugateprior Feb 18 '18 at 16:18
