Professor Bond is a specialist reviewer for journals across a wide range of human sciences and provides consultation to organizations involved in high-stakes educational testing in the US, UK and Europe. In 2005, he instigated PROMS: the Pacific Rim Objective Measurement Symposia to support the development of measurement capacity in S.E. and Eastern Asia. The second edition of his best-selling current book (co-authored with Christine Fox), Applying the Rasch model: Fundamental measurement in the human sciences, reflects his longstanding experience in educational settings as the background for applying fundamental measurement to outcomes in the human sciences. Prof. Bond is a regular presenter on topics of educational measurement and conducts Rasch measurement workshops in the U.S., S.E. Asia, Australia and Europe, in particular. Until recently, he was Head of the Department of Educational Psychology, Counselling & Learning Needs, at the Hong Kong Institute of Education.
