The course of differential calculus is essential because it is a prerequisite material in most classes at the next level. From experience, most of the students have not been able to master the prerequisite topic. These conditions will disrupt the teaching and learning process. Information about the students' initial knowledge will be useful for applying appropriate learning models. This research describes Bayes network application on the manufacture of items about the fixed and adaptive test related to differential calculus courses. The research method is an experiment. The sample used is the students of mathematics education program as many as 98 students who already finish differential calculus course. The results showed that the performance of adaptive test design in predicting student ability is better than fixed test design, especially after the fifth question. The performance of the fixed test items sorted from easy to difficult is better than other fixed test designs. This study is useful for making diagnostic test questions in mapping/predicting students' initial knowledge as well as evaluating their abilities. The suggestion for further research is to make the performance of fixed test design is equivalent to adaptive test in diagnostic capability.
