Curriculum Vitae


Yi-Hsin Chen is an associate professor of Educational Research and Measurement. Dr. Chen's primary research focuses are in the following related areas:

  • Applications of cognitive psychometric models (e.g., generalized DINA, LCDM, RUMM) which incorporate cognitive information into psychometric models.
  • Exploration of validating approaches (e.g., DIF, internal and external score validity) for Q-matrices and cognitive diagnostic profiles.
  • Examination of accuracy and precision of robust statistical approaches for traditional t-tests and ANOVA tests.
  • Applications of multilevel modeling (MLM) approaches (e.g., IRT, Rasch, and SEM) to achievement data and psychological data.

Dr. Chen's work has been published in Journal of Educational Measurement, 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.
