HDQM Doctoral Student Awarded Harold Gulliksen Psychometric Research Fellowship


COLLEGE PARK, MD (March, 2017) – Kaiwen Man, a third-year doctoral student in the College of Education’s Department of Human Development and Quantitative Methodology, has been awarded the Harold Gulliksen Psychometric Research Fellowship

Through the one-year fellowship, awarded by the Educational Testing Service, Man will receive more than $28,000 in stipend awards and other financial support to carry out research for his dissertation under the supervision of an academic mentor and in consultation with an ETS researcher or psychometrician.

The research conducted by Man, who is enrolled in the Measurement, Statistics and Evaluation program, explores detecting cheating behaviors in large-scale innovative assessments using big data techniques. Associate Professor Jeff Harring serves as Man’s advisor.

“This proposed research project would benefit from having more accurate and comprehensive measures of test-taker behavior, which ETS can facilitate,” Man said.
