CRISS H2020

ACQUISITION, ASSESSMENT AND CERTIFICATION
OF STUDENTS’ DIGITAL COMPETENCE
IN PRIMARY AND SECONDARY SCHOOLS

WHAT IS CRISS H2020?

CRISS is an educational innovation
project of the Horizon 2020 Program

The purpose of CRISS H2020 is to develop and pilot on a very large-scale way an educational platform in the cloud for the acquisition, evaluation, and certification of students’ digital competence in primary and secondary schools.

The use of the CRISS platform is integrated into the normal activity of the class so that students develop digital competence while learning their curricula.

How does it work?

eportfolio_teachers

TEACHERS

Teachers are in charge of planning, on the ePortfolio, the learning and evaluation activities and tasks that students will have to do. Those activities and tasks are selected from the library of learning scenarios integrated into the platform.

STUDENTS

Students make the tasks assigned and generate the pieces of evidence that prove the acquisition of the competence.

Students upload those pieces of evidence on the platform.

TEACHERS

The evaluation of digital competence is carried out by teachers using the rubrics, which are generated by the system and customized by themselves.

STUDENTS

Finally, students can download the certificates with the badges they have reached.

Framework and learning scenarios

CRISS provides a framework for primary and secondary school Digital Competence (DC) development, assessment and certification. It presents a comprehensive concept and an assessment model.

The Operational Concept expands the Digital Competence (DC) into 5 areas and 12 sub-competences along with performance criteria and indicators that support assessment. It has been developed on the basis of the DigComp framework for citizens and seven other DC European schemes applied in the school context.

The Competence Assessment Model is based on the pedagogy of integration, where DC is embedded into subjects or disciplines. It proposes the development of Competence Assessment Scenarios (CAS) where learners actively engage in solving problems, developing projects or searching for solutions in meaningful situations. Students’ productions represent evidence that is assessed using a variety of methods and instruments and that account for their DC development. The CAS can be integrated into the school curriculum and be adapted according the each context of implementation.

CRISS offers a flexible and customizable set of CAS that provides different opportunities for the development, assessment and certification of the DC for primary and secondary levels. They are available in English and some CAS are also translated to Catalan, Croatian, Greek, Euskera, Italian, Spanish and Swedish.
