The assessment constitutes a strategic resource to guide school and educational policies towards the country’s cultural, economic and social growth and to encourage the full implementation of the autonomy of educational institutions… to improve the quality of the educational offer and learning… the efficiency and effectiveness of the education and training system.
That’s why CISP – together with its partners – has developed a set of tools and guides to allow schools, teachers and students to assess their achievements and progresses after using our project’s resources.
The assessment is meant to measure the effectiveness of the Global Citizenship Education activities on the basis of the learning outcomes, as well as of the development of ethos and the compliance of the school policies with the Sustainable Development Goals of the U.N. 2030 Agenda (SDGs).
There are two tools available:
- A tool for the School: aimed at assessing the status quo and the progresses through 6 criteria related to sustainability and the SDGs.
- A set of learning assessment tools related to the Big Ideas aimed at helping teachers to assess their students’ progresses on the basis of their knowledge, competences and willingness to act;
Teachers from the 12 countries involved in the project are using and testing the tools at the same time. This will help us compare the results of the adoption of the GCE in school curricula at an international level.
Learning Assessment Tools
To assess progress, you will find below 4 questionnaires to measure knowledge about climate change, gender inequalities, migration and international inequalities, and cards to assess both global skills and attitudes stimulated during the teaching experience.
By giving students the same tool before and after the course you will have the opportunity to assess the progress of your classes.
In the "Instructions" document you will find detailed information, but in general you can proceed as follows.
STEP 1: Before starting an educational path on the topic you have chosen (e.g. "migrations") submit the migration questionnaire to your students and let them fill in only the initial part. At the same time, you will submit both the global skills and the attitudes form (both remain the same regardless of the chosen theme). Again, you will let your students fill in only the initial part of the questionnaire.
STEP 2: At the end of the path you will submit the same three tools to the same students. At that point you will have the possibility to measure your progress.
To facilitate this comparison you can use the learning calculation grid that we have created for you at the bottom of this page.
