Abstract:

Evaluation is a part of everyday life. Competences, knowledge and skills areassessed in ordinary as well as in institutional settings like hospitals,clinics and schools. This volume investigates how evaluations are beingcarried out interactionally. More specifically, it explores how peopleevaluate each others’ cognitive competences as they deal with each others’understandings, knowings, feelings, doings, hearings and learningsface-to-face.

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

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