The Need to Assess 21st Century Skills:

The Rationale for the Cisco-Intel-Microsoft 21st Century Skills Assessment Project

Barry McGaw, University of Melbourne

Executive Director

why must assessments change
Why must assessments change?
  • A major restructuring of the global economy
    • Shift of manufacturing from developed to emerging countries
    • Increased amount and proportion of GDP in developed countries based on generation, distribution, and use of information and creative products
    • Major shift in business practices toward distributed design, production and distribution supported by networked ICT
  • Systemic reform is needed in education to provide students with skills needed to be highly productive and creative workers and citizens (i.e., 21st Century Skills).
  • Assessments hold systems accountable . At the same time they are a gate to any systemic change in education.
  • Traditional assessments do not measure 21st century student skills effectively, nor do they incorporate the use of ICT.
why is this project needed
Why is this project needed?
  • Initiatives have focused on 21st Century skills but:
    • There is not a sufficient connection between 21st C classroom practices and national and international assessments.
    • While there is a common agreement on the needs of the 21st century skills and growing consensus on what these skills are, there is yet agreement on measurable definitions.
    • There are a variety of methodological and technological issues that have been encountered and need to be addressed.
  • The issues are of the magnitude that a private-public, international, multi-stake collaboration is needed:
    • Major national and international assessment agencies that include OECD/PISA and IEA.
    • National Education Departments and Ministries
    • Education reform organizations and projects
    • Corporations
goals of the project
Goals of the project
  • Build a collaboration to leverage ongoing work.
  • Identify and address issues in four areas:
    • Connection of assessments to 21st century classroom practices and environments to increase scalability.
    • Definition of 21st Century skills and competencies in measurable ways.
    • Methodological issues that address rigor and validity.
    • Technological barriers related to networking, security, scale, software applications.
  • Indicators of success
    • Acceptance, recognition, and participation by stakeholders
    • Problems identified, solutions developed, and widely available.
    • ICT-based assessment of 21st c skills incorporated into national and international assessments.
