Jin Songli, a PhD student from the University of Macau (UM) Faculty of Education (FED), received an Excellent Paper Award (Best Four Oral Presentations) at the 2017 Global Chinese Conference on Educational Information and Assessment and Chinese Association of Psychological Testing Annual Conference. The paper has great implications for understanding educational quality and equity of the high-performing education systems of Chinese communities around the world.
The awarded paper, titled ‘The Last Can Be the First: Important Factors Discriminating Between Academic Resilient and Non-Resilient Students of China in PISA 2015’, was jointly authored by Jin and her two PhD supervisors, namely Prof Cheung Kwok Cheung and Dr Sit Pou Seong from the FED.
