Why do we assess our students? What added value does this assessment bring to both students and teachers? Can we use assessment to stimulate cognitive, social and emotional development? Can assessment become a powerful tool for the development of students’ skills and teachers’ practice?
ASSESS is a project co-funded by the Erasmus + Agency of the European Union between 2020 and 2023 that targets these and many more questions about assessment with the goal of creating a powerful assessment framework for teachers and students.
The project will offer teachers a toolkit of digital and analogue tools to assess students in an innovative way and a digital app that aggregates these tools. Teachers will also find an online course that will teach them not only how to use the ASSESS tools, but also how to design and create their own innovative assessment tools.
