Dr Huiming Ding


I am a Lecturer in Assessment at LIME, where I undertake medical education assessment-related work and research to ensure quality measurement and support the improvement of the programmes of the School of Medicine. Prior to joining LIME, I was a research fellow at IOE, UCL's Faculty of Education and Society, where I worked with an interdisciplinary team on an ESRC-funded mixed-methods project entitled “Schools as Enabling Spaces to Improve Learning and Health-Related Quality of Life”. I obtained a PhD in educational assessment at University of Leeds in 2020. Before that, I worked on national/international large-scale assessments in educational authorities in China for several years.

Research interests

My current research interests focus on validity and validation, standard setting, patterns and explanatory factors of students’ performance, assessment impact and consequences, and feedback. I am interested in researching into assessment data (together with other data sources) to provide data-based evidence for informing teaching and learning practices and policymaking.
