The full capacity of Comparative Judgment Session description

Eva and Andrew will provide an overview of their experiences of working with Comparative Judgment (CJ) over the past number of years. The goal of this session is to both explain how CJ works, and to discuss some of the different ways that CJ is used. Examples will be provided of how CJ is used as a mechanism to facilitate formative assessment practices in (and between) classrooms, and how the method can be used to ensure equity of educational experience through establishing a shared understanding of standards between teachers and students.


Dr Eva Hartell is an experienced STEM teacher and holds a PhD in the area of classroom assessment.
Her doctoral thesis concluded that affordance for teachers’ assessment practices must be increased. She has been very fortunate to work together with teachers, schools, and municipalities conducting practice-based research during her doctoral studies and afterwards as well. She is currently working with research and development, in the municipality of Haninge and at KTH Royal Institute of Technology, in Sweden.
Her interest is to develop instruction in order to bridge teaching and learning in K–12 classrooms.
