NBS EduWORLD Assessment framework and guidance for the project

This report provides an overview and analysis of assessment tools for NBS education in the European region. Based on mapping, desk research and interviews, it finds that most of the reviewed student assessment tools constitute authentic assessment. Online NBS courses are more likely to adopt conventional assessment methods, such as formative and/or summative tests, due to the nature of the online learning environment. There is an unequal distribution across education levels, with continuous professional development for teachers and vocational education and training providing very few examples of assessment tools. In institutional assessment, there is a clear lack of incorporation of NBS education, although many NBS evaluation frameworks exist. The report also presents the guiding framework for NBS EduWORLD, built upon a project intervention logic, lessons learnt from previous project tasks and consultations with the Consortium and Advisory Board members. They are structured according to crucial project stages: Strategic vision and leadership; Understanding NBS education; Implementing NBS education, and Building the NBS EduCommunity.
