Evaluation is a part of everyday life. Competences, knowledge and skills are
assessed in ordinary as well as in institutional settings like hospitals,
clinics and schools. This volume investigates how evaluations are being
carried out interactionally. More specifically, it explores how people
evaluate each others’ cognitive competences as they deal with each others’
understandings, knowings, feelings, doings, hearings and learnings

The contributions focus on different evaluation activities in a variety of
institutional settings in Denmark, Finland, Sweden, Holland and the United
States of America.

All the contributions approach the theme by use of Ethnomethodology (EM)
and/or Conversation Analysis (CA). Thus, the analytic interests concern how
participants organize activities of evaluating cognitive competences by means
of recognizable interactional methods. This approach differs from other
approaches and research interests within cognitive science as it concentrates
on how people in interaction orient towards cognitive competence irrespective
of scientific theories.
