Since September 2016, Liesje Coertjens is Assistant Professor in Assessment for Learning. She completed her doctoral degree at the University of Antwerp in 2013 on the subject of change in learning strategies during the transition from secondary to higher education and statistical concerns in modelling growth. From 2013 to 2016 she was, as a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Antwerp, in charge of the day-to-day coordination of an interuniversity project on quality concerns with performance assessment. During 2015-2016, she was also guest professor on statistics in educational sciences.
Her research interests include the impact of different rating methods (e.g. rubrics rating, comparative judgement) on reliability, validity and efficiency and students’ transition to higher education and to the workplace. From a methodological point of view, her expertise concerns growth modelling, missing data and inter-rater reliability.
As an Assistant Professor she is responsible for courses on educational assessment, designing learning environments and research methods.
