Curriculum Vitae

Yi-Hsin Chen is an associate professor of Educational Research and Measurement. Dr. Chen's primary research interests are in the theories and applications of new cognitive-psychometric models (CPM) that combine cognitive psychology with modern psychometrics. Such models include Linear Logistic Test Model (LLTM), Tatsuoka's Rule-Space Methodology (RSM), Generalized DINA, Log-linear Cognitive Diagnostic Model (LCDM), and General Diagnostic Model (GDM). In addition, he is interested in differential item functioning (DIF) with the cognitive skills and the applications of multilevel and explanatory Item Response Theory (IRT) in secondary data analysis.

Dr. Chen's work has been published in Educational and Psychological Measurement, International Journal of Testing, Journal of Experimental Education, Journal of Modern Applied Statistical Methods, and Educational Research and Evaluation as well as in Monograph series.
