Study into the use of ICT for the assessment of Key Competences
Monday, 6 June 2011
This study being carried out by the Institute for Prospective Technological Studies will look at how ICT can support modernising schools and education and training practices by exploring assessment strategies that adequately capture all dimensions of the key competences for the 21st century, for all learners.
The study is expected to contribute to an European Commission Thematic Working Group on the Assessment of key competences, and to the preparation of a Policy Handbook on this topic by the end of 2011. Acquiring key competences is a priority for European and Member States policies, as argued in the Europe 2020 flagships "Digital Agenda", "New Skills and Jobs" and "Youth on the move" and "Innovation Union".
