The project aim was to develop an item bank and methodology, and then pilot a self-assessment tool for digital competence for foundation, intermediate and advanced levels among individuals in 3 Member States of the European Union, based on Digital Competence Framework for Citizens 2.1.
The Item Bank
A self-assessment / self-reflection tool to:
- make users aware of what is digital competence in the DigComp perspective;
- highlight their strengths and weaknesses in different areas of digital competence;
- encourage further competence development, by providing useful feedback to be discussed with expert counsellors.
Tool should be easy to understand and self-administer by the user, in a reasonably short time.
