eAssessment in VET
The DigCompEdu Framework area 4 (Assessment) in the context of VET
DigCompEdu as Research Framework
DigCompEdu is a general framework for identifying the digital skill of teachers and trainers in education in general while it is generic a more specific approach is needed for certain educational sectors, like TVET and for specific areas of the framework such as assessment.
In the context of DigCompEdu, this research report seeks to characterise and understand the digital capabilities of VET teachers and trainers within the partner countries focusing in the areas of digital assessment. The report combines a literature review, desk research and a survey (questionnaires and Interviews) in order to identify the competences and skills needed by a VET teacher or trainer for developing and using e-assessment in vocational education and training both in the classroom and in the workplace.
The report extends the DigCompEdu framework and focuses on the e-assessment area for which practitioners feel less confident and competent (according to a study from the TACCLE VET project) as confirmed in discussions with VET providers within the partnership.
