Yo In'nami, Professor, Chuo University, Tokyo, Japan
Research interest in applied linguistics
--Statistical methods for meta-analysis
Research interests in language testing
--Test method effects on listening/reading test performance (e.g., Currie & Chiramanee, 2010; Kobayashi, 2002)
--Construct validation study of a test/instrument/questionnaire (e.g., research into factorial/structural relationships among variables; see, for example, Bae & Bachman, 2010, Johnson, 2002, Llosa, 2007, Mizumoto & Takeuchi, 2012, Sawaki, 2007, Yamashiro, 2002)
--Meta-analytic inquiry into the variability of effects (e.g., Plonsky & Gass, 2011; for data analysis techniques, see Becker, 1992, Lipsey, 1992, Shadish, 1992)
--Longitudinal measurement of change in language proficiency and program evaluation (e.g., Kozaki & Ross, 2011; Ross, 2005)
----Regression to the mean (Campbell & Kenny, 1999)
----Research design (Shadish, Cook, & Campbell, 2002)
--Secondary analysis of survey and administrative datasets
--Application of language measurement models to language test data (especially, meta-analysis and structural equation modeling)
