Dr Jinxin ZHU is an Assistant Professor at the Department of Curriculum and Instruction at The Education University of Hong Kong (EdUHK). He received a bachelor’s degree from Beijing Normal University majoring in Mathematics and Applied Mathematics and a Ph.D. from EdUHK majoring in Educational and Psychological Measurement. Before re-joining EdUHK as an Assistant Professor, he worked as a Research Assistant Professor at the Department of Education Studies at Hong Kong Baptist University, a manager at the Assessment Technology & Research Division in the Hong Kong Examinations and Assessment Authority, a post-doctoral fellow at Assessment Research Centre at EdUHK, and a mathematics teacher at Fuyong Secondary School in Shenzhen, Guangdong, Mainland China.

His research focuses on digital assessment and learning, aiming to reduce teachers’ workload with digital tools allowing them to have more time and energy to help students to take an active role in the assessment and feedback process and become self-directed learners and thereby lifelong learners. Meanwhile, he applies rigorous data analytic methods (e.g., structural equation modeling, Rasch model, and multilevel modeling) to educational studies.
