Do any of you know if the ABIM uses adaptive testing? Meaning that questions become progressively easier or harder depending on how well you're doing. You can read more on wikipedia if you're completely unfamiliar.

I've spoked with a former PD who believes the ABIM is adaptive at this point. I sure felt like my questions became progressively harder at one point, but maybe I was just getting tired! I am doubtful that the ABIM has or will advertise when the test becomes adaptive.
