WHAT IS ATS STEM

 

Assessment of Transversal Skills in STEM is an innovative policy experimentation project  being conducted across 8 EU countries and involving a partner network of 12 educational institutions.

 

It aims to enhance digital assessment of second level students’ transversal skills in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics).

ACTIVITIES

 

ATS STEM consists of three phases: the pre-experimentation phase (research and development and detailed planning in partner institutions), the experimentation phase (field trials and evaluation at schools) and the post-experimentation phase (data analysis, reporting and exploitation).

ATS STEM PILOT SCHOOLS

 

In autumn 2019, the selection of the pilot schools is carried out in accordance with the procedures established in each country. Selected schools nominate teachers and classes for participation in the ATS STEM pilot from a mix of STEM related subjects.

RESEARCH FIELD

 

Integrated STEM curriculum provides opportunities for more relevant, less fragmented and more stimulating experiences for learners as well as coherent development of transversal skills. Use of ICT tools can support an ongoing process of assessment of  transversal skills, including peer- and self-assessment.
