Academic interests

The Item Response Theory (IRT) models and their extensions, such as mani-facets model (rater effect), response styles, response time model are interesting to me as well as the application of IRT, such as computerized adaptive testing, differential item functioning, and data-model fit testing. Currently, I am working on the IRT models for the forced-choice items (e.g. ranking items, Most-Least items). In my doctoral thesis, I developed the two new IRT models for the compositional items that refer to the forced-choice format but lead to the continuous data. 

Background

Prior to working at CEMO, I experienced the works as the senior research assistant in the Education University of Hong Kong, during which I investigated the reliability of the Principal Instructional Management Rating Scale (PIMRS; Hallinger, Wang, & Chen, 2013) with the multilevel structure and did the IRT modeling studies for the forced-choice items with Prof. WANG Wen-Cheng (Wang, Qiu, Chen, Ro, & Jin, 2017; Wang, Qiu, Chen, & Ro, 2016).
