YEN-TING CHEN

Psychometrics (Division of Psychology)
I am a graduate student in the Department of Psychology at NTU. For me, diving into psychometrics and exploring data with reasonable statistical method is to clarify a new world of understanding people around us. Whether it's a quirky little issue or a big, serious one, I've got curiosity and grabbed my attention to figure out problems using the tools or theories of psychometrics and data analysis. Right now, I am turning curiosity into discoveries in the wild world of Psychology and All kinds of Data!

Work Experience

Research Assistant of National Taiwan University

Apr 2023 - Present
Taipei City, Taiwan
Constructing Physical and Mental Health Rating System for Students in National Taiwan University directed by Professor Kai-Ping Yao (National Taiwan University) The main goal for me is to constructing the Computerized Adaptive Testing for Students to reduce the time-consuming questionnaire but with high percentage of correct classification which students should be taken care of more. This is my first time constructing a test with real data. Instead of simulated data, empirical data with time and social effect may influence the test validity and reliability. To reduce the interaction between the confounding variable and test validity/reliability, I may propose some indices or the item selection algorithm to stabilize the test structure (i.e., Stabilize the correlation or relationship between latent variables we are willing to measure).
