I'm going to try to get a better answer for you, but I think the distinction is between inferring related concepts from ANY series of questions and student responses, vs in the standardized test case having a manually designed model designed to assess certain skills.

are having trouble understanding' seen as such a complex problem? Isn't this done routinely with SAT/ACT and state-level standardized tests? Is it a matter of data volume?
