Abstract
The purpose of this study is to describe a methodology to recover the model (cognitive and item models) from generated test items using a novel graph theory approach. Beginning with the generated test items and working backward to recover the original model (cognitive and item models) using a systematic process with graph theory serves as model-based method for validating automatically generated test items. The methodology is demonstrated using generated items from the medical education domain. The proposed methodology was found to be systematic and generalizable using three different datasets.
