Manqian Liao Home People Manqian Liao Student Department Name: Department of Human Development and Quantitative Methodology Division: MSEDegree Program: Measurement, Statistics and Evaluation, Master of Arts (M.A.) Bio I earned my B.S. degree in Applied Psychology in Sun Yat-sen University, China. I am always fascinated about the quantitative aspect of psychology. I came across educational measurement in the junior year of my undergraduate study, and became interested in it while participating in a research project to develop large-scale educational assessments. Though I have taken some courses related to Psychometric Theory and Item Response Theory, I believe that this area is well worth delving into. Gladly, I joined the EDMS Program as a master's student in the fall of 2015.
