Innovative digital solutions to assess 21st century skills in makerspaces


ASSEMAKE21 in a nutshell

As the maker movement is increasingly adopted into K-12 schools and nonformal makerspaces, students have more opportunities to generate unique, personalized projects and artifacts, such as computer programs, robots, DIY electronics, and develop new competencies and skills necessary in the workplace of the 21st century. However, assessment of these skills is not easy, particularly within these open-ended environments where students create unique solution paths to problems, interact with peers, and act in both the physical and digital worlds.

The goal of the ASSESSMAKE 21 project is to provide, pilot, and validate novel assessment methods and tools for the assessment of 21st century skills. Pilot studies will take place in maker space settings in Ireland, Sweden, Greece, and Cyprus. The findings and the results from the pilots will be reported in an evaluation report.


* learners in makerspaces aged 12 -18 years

* secondary school teachers engaged with makerspaces

* nonformal educators and facilitators working in makerspaces


Pilot studies will take place in 5 schools and 4 non-formal
maker spaces in Ireland, Sweden, Greece, and Cyprus.
