Working Group Competence levels (chaired by Ernst Wagner)

After preparatory meetings with “Bundesinstitut Bildungsforschung, Innovation und Entwicklung (BIFIE)“ in Salzburg and the people in charge for the German project on students’ assessments (Hochschule Doepfer and German Institute for International Educational Research) the working group was established in Salzburg end of June. Members are Viola van Lanschot Hubrecht (NL), Andrea Kárpáti (Hu), Mira Kallio-Tavin (Fi), Claudia Luger-Bazinger, Franz Billmayer, Martina Grässle, Luka Leben (A), Ingrid Hoepel, Uli Frick and Ernst Wagner (D). For the first step it was decided to select the most relevant sub-competencies, to redraft the (already existing), respective performance level descriptions and then to formulate items to assess these competencies.
Luka Leben and Franz Billmayer presented examples of situations to be used in measuring levels of competencies at the ENViL meeting in Vienna on September 29th. The presentations were discussed vividly.
Meanwhile, we have the official “go“ for our project by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research. (11/16 2016)
On 27th of January 2017 we will meet for a workshop in Cologne.
