 The Psychometrics Forum Excellence in Psychometrics Award

We are pleased to announce the winner

Aiden Loe

Aiden Loe TPF Award 2

Aiden is a Computational Behavioural Scientist currently pursuing his PhD at the University of Cambridge.  He is an active member of The Psychometric Centre, interested in modelling latent factors in psychological questionnaires (personality, affective, ability etc.) using IRT and MIRT models. He specialises in using the R programming language. His PhD is developing Automated Computer Adaptive Testing (A-CAT) for cognitive tests. Currently, he is developing the Athan framework to provide a login system for psychological tests. (taken from University of Cambridge Psychometric Centre website).

Aiden presented his winning research poster on the following subject:  'Automating the Generation of 3D Rotational Items and Modelling Item Difficulty using Item Response Theory.'  He divided this into five areas  1) Automatic Item Generation (AIG) 2) Data Collection and Procedures 3) Data Analysis 4) Results and 5) Discussion and Research Contributions.

The judges were very impressed with Aiden's subject matter, the way he had approached his research and the presentation of material.   Aiden addressed very relevant issues for online tests through AIG -  how to maintain the integrity of test items and reduce compromised results.  Whilst some of the material was mathematically challenging, Aiden's written presentation was well laid out, so that points were made with clarity.  The poster presentation made after Aiden received his TPF Excellence in Psychometrics Award certificate was articulate and accessible.  Aiden successfully fielded a number of questions after his talk and the audience agreed that he was a very worthy winner.
