Dr. PJ Hsieh holds a master’s degree from the National Taipei University of Nursing and Health Sciences and a PhD from National Taipei University of Technology (NTUT). After completing her doctorate at NTUT, Dr. Hsieh worked for two years as a Postdoctoral Fellow for the Academic Performance of New-Immigrant Children Program, NAER. While at the NAER, Dr. Hsieh was promoted to the position of Assistant Research Fellow in 2012. Dr. Hsieh’s research focuses on large-scale educational assessment for evaluating the performance of Mandarin Chinese and mathematics education. A 4-year longitudinal survey evaluating the effects of related factors on the mathematics achievement growth of new-immigrant children was completed in 2016. Her current research is examining the performance of language and literacy among middle school students. To develop an online reading assessment for aligning the new curriculum guidelines, Dr. Hsieh developed a literacy-based assessment module to form the assessment framework, text selection or writing principles, item development principles, and reading-literacy-oriented items.
