Assessment of Transversal (or 21st century) Skills/Competencies
Building on the findings from previous research conducted by UNESCO Bangkok, NEQMAP launched a regional study on Assessment of Transversal Competencies in the Asia Pacific in October 2015. This study aims to explore different approaches or practices that countries/jurisdictions of the region adopt in assessing these skills and competencies (e.g. creativity, problem solving, critical thinking, and communication skill), the challenges encountered in the process, the lessons we could draw from the existing practices in the region and recommendations for future directions.
