Education&Skills Online Assessment
Education & Skills Online assessment is a project of the OECD and the European Commission. It was created after 2013 following the first publication of PIAAC results with the aim of specifically adjusting the instruments otherwise designed for testing on large population samples to the testing of individuals’ skills using a computer application.
This is why the instrument for individual testing is standardized and an individual’s results are comparable with national and international results. The tool mainly enables immediate results about the basic skills of an individual, thus providing value added to the PIAAC investment in the testing of the population and more effective implementation of measures for the development adults’ competences.
The Ministry of Education, Science and Sport has provided support to the implementation of the Education&Skills Online project within the scope of the multi-annual development project entitled Support for the Development of Basic Competences 2016–2022 implemented by the Slovenian Institute of Adult Education. Project activities began in December 2016 and are set to conclude in the beginning of 2018, which is also when the final version of the instrument adapted for Slovenia will be published.
