Educational assessment

Educational assessment in Kitas and schools aims to recognize a child’s talents thereby initiating an individual measure that provides the best possible support for the child. Educational assessment is based on techniques of observation that focus on dialogue and on the strengths of a child.

It includes not only the opinions of educators and teachers based on observation and various tools such as assessment tests, but also the points of view of the assessed child or their peers in order to recognize strengths and talents.
