Event Description

Full Description:
Presenter: Professor Richard Kimbell (Goldsmiths College, University of London)

Adaptive Comparative Judgement (ACJ) offers an alternative to marking, especially for performance assessments for which achievement can be difficult to describe in mark schemes. The ACJ system uses a web-browser to deliver pairs of candidates’ work to judges. The judges apply their subject expertise to select which of the two sets of work is better in terms of meeting appropriate educational objectives. A quality parameter is estimated for each piece of candidates’ work using the Rasch logistic model to analyse the judges’ decisions. Placing the pieces of work on a measurement scale gives them a rank order.

This online seminar will explore how ACJ delivered through online technologies can be a valid and highly reliable alternative to traditional analytical marking.

Starting 07:00am Universal standard time (5PM Brisbane) time for 1 hour.
