Abstract: In Educational Measurement field Item Response Theory is a dominant test evaluation method. A few years ago Lawrence Rudner has introduced an alternative method providing better results than IRT in some cases of measurement. However, his method called Measurement Decision Theory did not get much of interest in the community. In this article we would like to give MDT some of the focus we believe it deserves. In particular we are focusing on the practical issues necessary to successfully implement MDT into a daily life of Educational Measurement. We will summarize classification abilities. After that in the main part of this paper we will explain in depth calibration process which is a crucial part of MDT implementation. A basic calibration process will be described as well as its characteristics. Then, as a main result, an improvement of this basic process will be introduced.
